If you could go back in time to the morning of Nov 7, 2016...

What would you do differently, if anything?

I would, personally, fly to Detroit and spend the day helping the GOTV efforts

Trump would probably spend the day insulting rust belt voters (he really doesn't want the job)

2. So knowing what you know you would do nothing to help Clinton

 

If that is the case please do not complain on this board about the Trump presidency.

5. Nothing would've helped Clinton on November 7th... the time to do something was MUCH earlier, but, Hillary thought she could coast to victory...

oh, and fuck Trump!

3. On Nov 7, 2016, the cake was baked - there's nothing one person could do

that's like saying the night before a final exam, there was still a way to get an 'A' in a course you forget you were even enrolled in all semester (an occasional nightmare I still have, the 'forgotten course' dream)

4. I disagree

 

Given the small margins she lost PA, MI and WI with--every little bit would have helped

6. lol NRQ... I've had that nightmare before, dreaming I was back in school, but forgot what classes I was in and missed exams...

... pretty much how Hillary ran her lax campaign.

I think Bernie worked harder for her election!

7. I would have bet a shit ton of money in him winning

 

And at least woken up the next day much richer. At least it wouldn't be all rich people getting richer then

I doubt there is much one person could do unless you are campaign manager

And no, I didn't vote for trump since that will be someone's response since I didn't say how i would manjically change the outcome by myself.

Those who bet, against all odds, on him winning the election made bank

and get Hillary on a plan and living in three states.

12. That's easy

I would contact Trump and let him know he's going to win. I will then tell him he must immediately tweet 'This country needs Sharia law.' It will save the country and he won't have the problem of getting a job he doesn't want.

Win-win

13. The irony being..

 

That the law that these "conservatives" want to impose restricting women, gays, minorities etc is very similar to sharia law
