Trump had some help from the Russians and from the Electoral College. Significantly more Americans did NOT want Trump as President than wanted him. And his consistently low approval ratings (the lowest of any President by far since WWII at this point in the first term) continue to back that up.

The fact that he won is far more attributable to the failures of the systems we have in place than the failure of the Democratic Party.
