Navin Nayak, the head of Clinton’s opinion research division, sent an email to senior campaign staff last night sharing initial takeaways from the bruising election loss.
Wrote Nayak: “We believe that we lost this election in the last week. Comey’s letter in the last 11 days of the election both helped depress our turnout and also drove away some of our critical support among college-educated white voters — particularly in the suburbs.”
She added: “We also think Comey’s 2nd letter, which was intended to absolve Sec. Clinton, actually helped to bolster Trump’s turnout.”Save to Favorites
