Hillary Clinton Is Going to Sell a Lot of Books. Does That Bode Well for 2016?


So you want to run for president? You’d better write a book. Seemingly every presidential candidate, from front runners to long shots, has a book to flog on the campaign trail.

How will that translate into votes? Herein, a comprehensive snapshot, showing the surprising relationship, historically, between a candidate’s book sales and his or her performance on the big day.
