There are plenty of reasons why Hillary Clinton is disliked:
-She's a woman. The American people dislike female leadership. Even other women tend to dislike it: forbes.com/sites/ruchikatulshyan/2014/0...
-Her campaign message lacked a central theme. The slogan "Stronger together" epitomizes a strategic failure in that if you build your strategy around everything, you effectively build it around nothing. Maybe she should have focused on her base instead of courting neocons.
-In contrast with Donald Trump, the media honed in on one specific criticism of Clinton: the e-mails. The media drove it in like a stake through her heart, while Trump's countless scandals acted as a bed of needles. His flaws were so many that he could rest on the distributed pressure.
-She represented the Democratic establishment. There was little she could actually do to correct the blemishes of Obama's administration as secretary of state. Yet, the American people scapegoated her anyway.
-She's a career politician with a history of corporatism and pay-to-play politics. She tends to come off as stilted, and even the Podesta e-mails took into account that millennials aren't too fond of political pretenses.
Obviously, this isn't to say that Trump is any better, and I happen to like Clinton as a person. But outside of neoliberal circles and feminists, she really struggled to invoke raw enthusiasm.
To be honest, if she were a man, her campaign would have played out much differently.
