The Hill: Dem strategist says some voters took their vote for granted in 2016

May 10, 2019

Democratic strategist Halie Soifer said Friday that some people who stayed home in the 2016 election took their vote for granted and assumed Hillary Clinton would win the election.

“Part of it also is that the polling consistently showed her ahead,” Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, told Hill.TV’s Jamal Simmons on “What America’s Thinking.”

“I think people took for granted the fact that she would win, and perhaps didn’t think their vote would matter,” she continued. “But now we know how much it mattered.”
