Fewer, not less. Sorry, but it's a peeve.
I see this as yet another false perception vs reality thing. The narrative we've been hearing over and over for the better part of this year has been how Trump is driving away voters, and GOP turnout will be horrific, the GOP is in disarray, etc, etc, but the numbers on election day show us that the Dems had a much harder time retaining voters. Clinton drove more voters away than Trump. Now, that's hardly a ringing endorsement of Trump, but he at least made up for losses in traditional GOP voters with some new folks (and looks like he pulled quite a few blue collar Dems as well), while Clinton just plain lost.
And yeah, to be fair, Obama was charismatic as hell, while Clinton was... well... not. So there's that. Trying to compare to Obama's numbers is somewhat unfair, but again, that's still part of the process.
It's a bit early to say for sure, but I do find it interesting that it looks as though it's actually the GOP that is transforming itself along broader and more populist lines (again, can't tell how that'll affect policy though), while the Dems are the ones chasing after a steadily shrinking minority. Could just be a hiccup in trend from this one very strange election cycle, but who knows.
As to how I voted, I'm not specifically going to state, but Joph pretty much has the right idea. In the end, how I voted didn't really matter, and I knew it from day one (and his vote didn't really matter either, so there's that). The bigger point is that how I personally feel about a candidate isn't necessarily reflected in how I think each candidate may do. So when I spoke about how I thought the polls were off in terms of Trump support, that was not wishful thinking on my part, but just a nagging suspicion based on what I was seeing going on in popular media, people I've spoken to, and even to some degree how the campaigns themselves were operating (Clinton's seemed to go into panic mode the last week of the election, which is never a good sign).
Um... Despite this, I was still pretty darn sure Clinton was going to win Tuesday morning. So yeah, quite a surprise watching the night unfold. Not at all what I thought would happen. I figured maybe Trump wouldn't lose as badly as people were projecting. Didn't think he'd win.
