In the run up to the election Hillary Clinton's emails dominated the perceptions of the American voters.

Courtesy of HuffPo:

 During last year’s election, the polling firm Gallup regularly asked Americans if they’d read, heard, or seen anything about the presidential candidates in the last few days. Those who had ― usually two-thirds or more of the public in any given week ― were asked to elaborate. 

The researchers then pulled out the words used by the public to describe what they were hearing about both candidates, as part of an effort to figure out what information was reaching voters and staying with them. 

In a chart of the most common words used in relation to Clinton between last summer and Election Day, the word “email” quite literally crowds out the rest, with several of the other most prevalent words also alluding to perceptions that she was scandal-plagued. 

With emails so prominently on the minds of the voters, which was constantly being reinforced by the Wikileaks drip drip of leaks from hacked Democratic email accounts, is it really any surprise that Comey's letter had the effect that it had?

It was almost a perfect storm of coordination between the Republicans, the Russians, and the far left who were just looking for a reason not to vote for Hillary in the general.

    They were discussing on CBS this am about the security guy calling his russian counterpart to knock it off with interfering in the elections. They wanted to know what Obama was doing about all this and the answer was nothing. So is this all Obama’s fault?

    Is this going to be the republican defense ?

      And I still ask, why was it President Obsma's job to do anything?

      I think we should recall that President Obama put the wheels in motion early on to have the appropriate government bodies investigate the leaks and possible collusion. It had to be done quietly for obvious reasons.

    "“The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails" Really?

    Obama was letting the agencies do their jobs without interfering. If he had, by putting out that the trump campaign was being investigated, republicans would have screamed that he was trying to influence the election and want his head on a platter.

    "Email is the devil's.... mail!! I haven't trusted email since a man sent me a picture of his weewee on Prodigy way back in nineteen hundred and ninety one!

    Crooked Hillary had her own email server!! I bet she was sending weewee pictures too! That makes me furious and I don't even know what an email server is, but I know it's EVIL!!

    Thank you Lord Jeebus for bringing us President Drumpf!"
