Deroy Murdock on FOX Business Credits GatewayPundit Analysis on Hillary – She Lost in Part Because Trump Outworked Her

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Deroy Murdock was on FOX Business this past week and he cited TGP analysis to explain why Hillary lost the election.  Simply put, Hillary lost the election because she couldn’t fill up a high school gym while President Trump was setting attendance records at arenas around the US.

Deroy Murdock cited TGP work before the 2016 election where we noted that President Trump was outworking Hillary. The President to be also had a level of excitement that the Hillary team did not have.  It was difficult to attain accurate numbers but our end result showed that President Trump was way outpacing Hillary in attendance at rallies and on social media.

Deroy stated on FOX Business with Charles Payne –

The reason that Hillary Clinton lost was because she was lazy.  Just to give you some numbers from TGP, Jim [Joe] Hoft ran these figures.

Donald Trump did 132 rallies.  Hillary Clinton did 63, less than half.  Donald Trump took 23 days off when he had no rallies.  Hillary took 57.  There are 99 days between August 1 and election day, she took 57 days which means 57 days off when she was not doing rallies.  He outworked her.  He showed up in Wisconsin and she didn’t.  She barely went to Michigan.  He was in Michigan numerous times. If she really wanted to be President she should have worked harder.


On November 4th, 2016 we posted our prediction on the election result.  Our analysis showed that excitement was in the future President’s favor.  We picked a Trump win in part because “Rallies Show Massive Excitement for Trump and None for Hillary” –

We noted –

We have kept track of the number of participants at both Trump and Hillary rallies since the conventions in July. Since August 1stTrump has crushed Hillary in these events. Trump rallies have accumulated more than 710,000 in August through October while Hillary’s only at 60,000. These numbers are so huge they cannot be ignored!


(Note that we updated these numbers after the election which were used by Murdock in the segment on FOX Business.)

Social Media

Social media numbers for Trump heavily outpace Clinton.


We went on to predict a Trump win and he won!

Hillary cannot accept the fact that Americans didn’t want her because she was so corrupt.  Very few wanted a crook in the White House.
