I voted for Hillary. Was very disappointed in the final results. And like President Obama, I realized our cause and positions would be best served by not staying depressed too long, dusting ourselves off and getting back after naturally mourning for a bit so we could take the fight back to Trump and his crowd.
You don't grow movements and win causes/campaigns by lingerin the shadows of excessive soul-searching and navel gazing. You get angry enough to do something constructive.
You've touched on this but I think it's "bouncing off" people. Democrats need to forget slamming Repugnants, don't talk about what we want to do, let's talk about the economic damage Repugnants have done.

Boycott everything, except what is necessary for life. The system is in control because of our desires. The sleeper must awaken.
After some very quick and easy research, I found the state of Washington's political leanings to reflect the overall country. Rural areas lean majority republican, and the highly populated coastal areas are majority democrat. I am going to buck the passive/aggressive political correctness that pervades in our west coast society today and say this is likely due to education levels and low information voting.
