She must have, because every time she was discussing guns and the like, she kept on evoking dead families (Emotional manipulation.) and saying stuff like "The NRA and gun manufacturers are bad, gun violence is bad.", and people seemed to love it. Bernie Sanders was getting booed and accused of siding with the gun lobby because he said that he didn't think that the families of Sandy Hook victims should sue because guns are a legal product (Um, how is that wrong?). She got a lot of applause whenever she mentioned how bad banks and Wall Street are (Without really getting into all of the thousands of dollars that they've given her and that she took for at least a decade.).
She said a lot of stereotypical things that a lot of people wanted to hear, and she did manage to beat good old Bernie. The media seemed to like her a lot more, that's for sure.
