updated April 9, 2018)
OVERVIEW: The Clinton campaign (HFA) appeared to have a very solid organization, with much more depth and many more staffers than the Trump campaign. All told there were 900-plus employees at headquarters in Brooklyn and about 3,000 employees in the affiliate entities nationwide. HFA began to name state directors for the general election starting at the end of April 2016 and by the time of the convention had directors in all 50 states. The campaign and Victory 2016 (DNC/HFA) built up robust organizations in the battleground states. For example in Florida there were about 750 total staff and 82 offices around the state. As from the outset, the campaign placed a significant emphasis on staff diversity. HFA had offices in all 50 states and as of mid-Oct. had 455 offices in the battleground states (12 states plus ME-2 and NE-2). In addition to people out in the field, many new staffers joined the headquarters team in Brooklyn in June, July and August and there was considerable reconfiguring. (Separate from the campaign, in August 2016, work started on the transition through the Clinton-Kaine Transition Project, a 501(c)(4); that effort maintained a very low profile). In the closing weeks of the campaign, dozens of staffers are deployed from headquarters to key states to help out with GOTV and other work.

A lot of talent went into this campaign and "it seemed to be working." In the aftermath of Nov. 8, people have sought to understand how such an upset could have halppened. Criticisms have been levelled at the candidate, the campaign, and the message. Observers have suggested that the campaign was too data driven; the polling, on which much was based, missed white, rural voters; the campaign was "Brooklyn heavy" and "top-down, command and control;" and "they didn't run a continual campaign." At the same time many people who worked in Brooklyn praise the culture within the organization. On the question of running a continual campaign there is the example of Michigan, which proved to be a critical state. One staffer commented to this reporter that the national headquarters shut down operations after the primary ("they closed it all") and then restarted it later for the general election. However, another staffer pointed to limited resources and said the move was move of a pause. Jonathan Allen and Annie Parnes' book Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign has many revelations about the inner workings of the Clinton campaign, highlighting questionable decisions such one to do no polling in the final three weeks leading up to Election Day. A New York Post April 18, 2017 headline declared,"Hillary Clinton ran the worst presidential campaign ever." There were clear flaws in the candidate, the message, and decisions made by campaign leadership, and with the benefit of hindsight mistakes are apparent, but the campaign organization itself was a generally solid and professional group, and there was much creative and innovative work done day in and day out by hundreds of staff putting in long hours in the various departments. Perhaps most damaging was the underlying sense and widespread expectation throughout the general election period that against the "unfit" Trump, Clinton's win was inevitable; this mindset no doubt colored some of the decisions, leading the campaign to play it safe (+), in contrast to the Trump campaign which was constantly on the edge, and at the time did seem in some respects like the worst campaign ever. But it worked.
