Considering there was just a 1% difference in the popular vote (48% Clinton - 47% Trump) I guess that makes Trump pretty popular too.

This election the political parties offered us the Evil of Two Lessers.

By the way, it was the independent voters who put Trump in office. The core Democrats outnumber the core Republicans by about 1.4 to 1. the only way a republican can win national office is if the independents vote along with the Republican core.

Yes indeed. If people want to be realistic, that's really the only way to look at it.

Trump had the highest negative ratings of any major party nonimee in history, Hillary the 2nd most negative ratings.

Hillary is liked and looked up to by a decent amount of older women who like her came from the "Mad Men" era of gender relations through second wave feminism having to fight every step of the way.

According to the polls, 53 percent of the female vote was for Trump. This in spite of the infamous p**** Remark. They both had negatives. Hillary was not either loved or lovable.
