"If we ask whether hatred of Hillary Clinton, much of it irrational and fueled by decades' worth of outlandish conspiracy theory, played a role in the outcome of the 2016 presidential election -- I mean, that's not even a question, right? Many interlocking factors were implicated in the most bizarre and unlikely election result in modern political history: James Comey's fateful letter to Congress; the disruption caused by fake news and social-media manipulation, some of it apparently by the Russians; the Clinton campaign's overconfidence and complacency. But the orgiastic, "1984"-style outpouring of lock-her-up Clinton hate, weaponized brilliantly by Donald Trump and his campaign, was surely one of the biggest. To some degree it made all the others possible."
