Kellyanne Conway Fires Back At Hillary Clinton's Election Loss Comments: 'We Had A Better Candidate'

Kellyanne Conway has responded to Hillary Clinton‘s recent comments explaining her responsibility in the 2016 election loss.

“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” the 69-year-old former Secretary of State expressed on Tuesday (May 2) to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women panel held in New York City.

Kellyanne appeared on Fox News to discuss the election and Hillary‘s comments with Sean Hannity on Wednesday (May 3): It was many things,” Kellyanne explained, “but we also had a better candidate [Donald Trump], better message, better campaign, better strategy and I think just more self-awareness overall, but I do want to push back on something Hillary said. She said that she was winning if the election were on October 27th, that’s actually not true if you look at the Real Clear Politics aggregate, and I did today, in the six states that went for Obama in 2012 but Trump 2016, Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Iowa.”

“You look at these states,” Kellyanne added. “Her numbers actually stay the same or in fact improved from the October 27th, to the aggregate that was taken November 5th, of course the election was November 8th. What happened was Donald Trump continued with his strategy of going and connecting with voters doing these 7-8 rallies a day towards the end. Sure we had a fraction of the money, a fraction of the staff, we had a much better candidate and an actual economic message for working class America.”

“I mean the lack of self awareness was stunning, the idea that she ignored Wisconsin meant that Wisconsin ended up ignoring her,” Kellyanne concluded. “And the idea that she yet again mentioned, ‘I won the popular vote.’ You know what the prize is for that? The participation trophy is second place.”
