    I voted for Hillary Clinton. I wasn’t pumped about her until the last few weeks and I feel bad that I didn’t work harder to get her elected. Time to work to save our country!

    I voted for Bernie originally because he was philosophically aligned with my values. I think Wall Street needs to be regulated and reformed, especially because People are expected to use 401ks and IRA accounts for their retirement and they are being cheated out of their life savings by Wall Street hucksters. The environment is critically important. Sustainable energy is important. Saving the middle class is important. Keeping jobs in the United States needs to be a priority. Exporting our technology to China was a huge mistake. The huge gap in pay that is a fairly recent phenomenon is destroying this country. I understand that Bernie is also an ineffectual candidate who does not get much passed through congress, and not all of his ideas are workable.

    I only voted for Hillary because Trump terrifies me. Hillary and her position on Monsanto, fracking and her relationship with wall street make her a less than ideal candidate.

    I voted for Hillary because she was the most qualified despite not being perfect. I don’t know anyone who is perfect but we expect perfection in women not men. I am also a realist – I know we need change but most change does happen incrementally – step by step – until it builds momentum. Hillary knows how our government works and I believe that she could have pressed forward and implemented good changes.

    With Trump, I am afraid of seeing Draconian changes in Social Security, Medicare, Women’s Issues and Worker Issues. The 1% will pay even less and the burden will fall on the rest of us.

    I voted for Hillary because I’ve always known she’d run for president, and despite all that is not perfect about her, I’ve always felt inclined to believe in her quest to leave a positive mark. To the people who insist that she’s too much of a politician to care about the lives of others, I can only shake my head, because some of the things she said about her unique perception as a woman in a man’s world would surely have brought about change. I’m still holding my breath a little for the electors to get their shit together, but only a little

    I voted for Hillary although I felt that she had significant flaws as a candidate and I supported Bernie in the primaries. But I could not vote for Trump and didn’t support any third party candidates so Hillary was really the only choice. She has done great things in her life but her significant ties to Wall Street and nagging questions about the ethics involved in donations to the Clinton Foundation were significant negatives for me.

    I voted for Hillary Clinton because there is a non-zero chance Donald Trump will either move to deport and/or register Muslims and/or other immigrants.
