    An almost endless list of reasons.

    For starters, lots of people hate former British prime minister Tony Blair.... the Clintons used to be very good friends with the Blair's, and taught him & his party everything they knew about how to lie & spin doctor their way to power at all costs..... the Clinton's are basically the King & Queen of that style of politics that's been going on since the early 90's, inspired the sitcom "Spin City"... claim all the expenses they can get their hands on, spin doctor everything with glossy PR Bullcrap to stay in power even if it means casually ignoring public services falling to bits, and smear opponents with a variety of lies to the point they're too timid to fire back in case it backfires on them.

    Second reason..... the memory of Bill's inability to keep his pants on when he's around women, ranging from rape allegations to inappropriate use of a cigar.... having him hanging around in back of shot probably wouldn't have been ideal for his victims if Hillary had won.... especially after what she said about them.

    Third reason.... the phenomenon commonly known as "Arkancide", where a long list of people the Clinton's were associated with seeming to have a rather unfortunate tendency to die shortly after doing something to piss them off.

    Fourth reason..... the stories of Hillary giving Bill a black eye in the White House + lashing out at the Secret Service guys.

    Fifth reason.... the time she referred to black people as "Super Predators" + that other time she called a top guy in the KKK her "Mentor".

    Sixth reason..... her policies of basically trying to fix America's problems by doing more of the things causing the damn problem in the first place + recycling things long after they've been taken apart by some of America's leading policy think tanks as nonsense

    Seventh reason..... lying about Benghazi + inappropriate handling of E-mails containing Classified information.

    Eight reason..... rumours about her health being not brilliant, including a dodgy heart valve she's too damn stubborn to get fixed in case it made her look too fragile for the job.

    Which would also explain why she went without holding a press conference or much other contact with the media for over 269 days of her campaign... while Trump went full steam ahead, hardly stopped talking.....

    Ninth reason.... rumours about her hygene, or lack of.

    Tenth reason.... trying to attract Millenials to vote for her, then trying to please her lobbyists by trying to screw services such as "Uber" + "AirBnB" out of existance.... aka the kind of new & interesting ways of doing things millenial types tend to embrace.

    Eleventh reason..... targetting the wrong audience with wrong policies.... she basically seemed to be trying to attract:

    1) The sort of people who inspired the creation of sitcom characters Frasier & Niles Crane.... the sort of people who drink wine, drive luxury cars, and go to Golf Clubs / Country Clubs / Yacht Clubs, etc

    2) The sort of people who would buy a Toyota Prius (Aka the "Pious")

    3) People who seem to want to live off food stamps + also want the government to pay for the consequences of them laying on their backs with their legs in the air.

    Let's face it, in America those people are very few & far between, and you're far more likely to find people who embrace & would much rather: Drive a pick-up truck (very likely a Ford F-150) or a Muscle Car, drink cheap massed produced beer, love to go mudding + fishing + hunting + watch NASCAR, and want to work hard for a living and earn a good income for their family without having to mooch off the government..... and love going to church..... love using guns responsibly without doing harm to anybody (as seem on the "DemolitionRanch" and other popular* Youtube channels)... and are extremely proud of their Armed forces + emergency services.... basically the sort of people Hillary referred to as "racists" & "deplorables".

    * Basically this type of stuff, Hillary kinda gave the impression she doesn't like people living like this:

    2.8 mil isnt losing

  • She could no longer hide just how much she hated the American people and how much the power and glory of being President meant to her and how much power it would give her. She reeked with it and the people rose up and said no way.

    She disappears from the campaign trail for week. They stopped running ads in states Obama won. The collapse on 9/11 didn't help. Bernie's protest voters were determined to some how punish her because Bernie was unable to win in states like California and NY, so they voted for Stein.
