It's not 1% of Trump voters switching to Hillary
The real story is the 10 milion voters who came out for Obama in 2012 (and the other extra 10 million who came out for him in 2008) who DID NOT VOTE in this election. 2% more voters in those swing states would have secured Clinton a win. There's also another 80 million who seem to be missing every election, either through not being registered or not voting. The Democrats need to focus on getting out all votes. The demographics then kick in and they should sweep everything.

Re: It's not 1% of Trump voters switching to Hillary
Have there been any estimates as to how much of this difference is due to voter suppression (voter id and other post voting rights act bs) versus lack of enthusiasm? It has been clear for a while that the Republican to deal with their demographic disadvantage is to stop people from voting, but I wonder how much that can account for.
