They were fighting a race against people that wanted to use lies and racism in a state where enough people are racist enough or uneducated enough to go for it. Not an easy sell. There was also the motivational problem of younger voters. They came out and said that the 19-35 demographic skipped this election.
The schools messaging was sloppy. They didn't respond to the lies forcibly enough. Suburban women were the key and the campaign team was supposed to know that. They failed.
The issue as posted in another thread, is that these folks are watching their echo verse propaganda outlets, and are unfortunately a hard audience to reach. The DNC needs to figure a way around this echoverse, but for now, it is a very powerful misinformation machine with a lot of money behind it.
Of course - there is no easy antidote to misinformation. But McAuliffe claiming parents shouldn't be so involved in school curriculum a few days before the election is not among them
