The Self Righteousness of the Left.
Worse, they don't seem to understand the true nature of their loss. While they rave on about winning the popular vote, but for New York City and Los Angeles, they would have lost that also. While they rant on about not steering enough voters out to the polls on election day, the Republicans had virtually no organized ground game under Trump. What they did have was highly self- motivated voters, wanting to see some fundamental changes in their government.
I don't think that the two post election strategies of having a recount, or subverting the Electoral College, will endear more voters to the Democratic Party. Bill Clinton speaking of "angry white men", and using every excuse for Hillary's loss, won't help either. Obama spending his final days in office muttering about Putin hacking our system, is just another example of poor losing. He would have served righteousness better confronting Russia about the carnage in Syria. Michelle Obama told Oprah Winfrey that the country is losing hope under president elect Trump. She apparently doesn't understand that voters were looking for more than hope, they want progress, both for themselves and the country.
