I suspect many of them didn't show up because they didn't feel they could in good conscience vote for Hillary. Had the Democrats run a more appealing candidate with less baggage, they would have seen a better voter turnout.

I understand that, but that decision was tantamount to a vote for Trump.

Everyone was also repeatedly told Hillary was favored to win in every poll, so the impetus for liberals to make it out on voting day was markedly lower.
