Hillary ran the worst presidential campaign ever
We all knew that Hillary Clinton ran the worst presidential campaign in modern history.
We do get to find the hidden missteps as political books review the race.
So guess what? In the last weeks before the election, the Hillary Clinton campaign did no polling. No. Polling. Whatsoever. Oh, it had data. Lots and lots of data. Analytics, even. Data analytics! But it had no independent information on the overall field of battle in states like Florida, Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.
So when the election began to turn Donald Trump’s way, the Clinton campaign had no idea.
This is one of the thousand revelations in “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” the new book by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes that, for political junkies, redefines the word “juicy” for our time.
