Simply put, to Clinton supporters she did no wrong. To the anti-Clintonista's, she should have been tarred and feathered and thrown in jail for putting this country's security at risk. You're not going to change any of their minds.
The FBI decided to late her skate, they probably had consultations with other organizations and decided its better to keep our operations and how we do things, disseminate things secret and from public view. Charging her and going to court would have put these things out in the public arena in full view of friends and enemies. Better to let her skate than have that happen.
We'll have to disagree on why the public disliked Hillary. It was no secret that they did way back in February of 2016 when a poll showed that 56% of all Americans wanted the democrats to nominate someone other than Hillary. The Democrats didn't heed what all Americans wanted, just Democrats which was their right. Now it is all Americans that decide elections, not just Democrats which they found out that November of 2016. The warning was there, the Democrats just ignored it.
I think Hillary has caused her own dissatisfaction among Americans, not just the Republican smears as you call them. She still isn't liked today by a majority of Americans. 77% of Democrats like her, 30% of independents and 4% of Republicans. It was Hillary's dislike by independents that let Trump won the independent vote and the White House. In 2016, only 27% independents liked or had a favorable view of Hillary compared to 30% today.
Regardless of who we blame or the cause, the fact remains that Hillary plain isn't liked.
I do agree, it is all a matter of personal perspective. The good news from 2016 was that Hillary lost, the bad news was that Trump won. Such is life and politics. It was in my opinion bad politics to nominate someone as disliked as Trump was by America as a whole and more disliked than Trump by independents, 70% disliked of Hillary vs. 57% disliked of Trump back in 2016. Questions 10 and 11.
It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
