As someone that did vote for HRC over Trump (I'm not fully insane, gang) I do think they number stinks.  But you have to ask how that compares to past elections.  This was pretty eye opening though i think that for anyone that blames Bernie for Trumps victory it wont move the needle:

"Moreover, defections from a primary to general election are common. More voters went from Hillary Clinton to John McCain in 2008 than went from Sanders to Trump in 2016; about 13 percent of Trumpís 2016 voters also voted for Barack Obama in 2012."
