This is a warts & all analysis of what happened in the 2016 Presidential Election that caused Hillary Clinton to lose the race. The authors who had unprecedented access to the staff and principle players in the campaign because of their previous book, HRC, and they pull no punches in assessing who was to blame for the loss. And there's quite a lot of blame to go around:
--Robby Mook's insistence on relying on computer models instead of putting people on the ground in the states.
--Bill Clinton butting in always at inopportune times.
--A campaign staff that seemed to focus on competing with each other for access to the candidate than in winning the race
--The public perception of the Clintons as wanting to make money for themselves more than they wanted to do good for the country
--Russia's meddling in the election
--James Comey's inopportune public statements about his investigation into Clinton's emails
--And finally, the candidate herself.

This is an election people will be talking about for the next 100 years. ( )

This is an excellent examination of what went wrong with the Clinton campaign and why she really lost. While the Russians’ hacking and James Comey’s untimely letter had a role in her demise, the real problems began even before she ran for office. First, it was the candidate herself – hardly loved by most. Then were the decisions she made to use a private server, give speeches for money and becoming part of the Clinton Foundations, all bad decisions that were made knowing she was going to run in 2016. Making her situation worse were the decisions made throughout the campaign that are documented in the insightful look at this campaign. This is a great book for those who love politics, history and elections, as well as for anyone who just wants to understand what happened in 2016! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553447084, Hardcover)

It was never supposed to be this close. And of course she was supposed to win. How Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump is the tragic story of a sure thing gone off the rails. For every Comey revelation or hindsight acknowledgment about the electorate, no explanation of defeat can begin with anything other than the core problem of Hillary's campaign--the candidate herself.

Through deep access to insiders from the top to the bottom of the campaign, political writers Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes have reconstructed the key decisions and unseized opportunities, the well-intentioned misfires and the hidden thorns that turned a winnable contest into a devastating loss. Drawing on the authors' deep knowledge of Hillary from their previous book, the acclaimed biography HRC, Shattered will offer an object lesson in how Hillary herself made victory an uphill battle, how her difficulty articulating a vision irreparably hobbled her impact with voters, and how the campaign failed to internalize the lessons of populist fury from the hard-fought primary against Bernie Sanders.

Moving blow-by-blow from the campaign's difficult birth through the bewildering terror of election night, Shattered tells an unforgettable story with urgent lessons both political and personal, filled with revelations that will change the way readers understand just what happened to America on November 8, 2016.
