Still crying about the election? Really? At some point you guys have to get past the first two stages of grief. Trump won, Hillary was more aware of the rules than any other candidate in history, she lost, time to move on.
Both the left and the right pushed the idea of selecting Supreme Court nominees as part of their Presidential campaign, many voters were most likely holding their noses and voting for that purpose on both sides.
And let’s remember that Trump did not see any “surge” of support. His election numbers were very similar statistically as Romney and McCain, it was Hillary who under performed. Democrats stayed home and a few voted for Trump, at some point the left needs to come to grips with this fact.
