How did the FBI become so pro-Trump? That's kind of weird. Usually civil service is pretty pro-establishment, and pretty conservative in the "not wanting any change" sense of the word. Hillary seems like a pretty good candidate for them. Perhaps a bit too left-wing, but she's unlikely to make any major reforms or rock the boat too much. Trump is pretty much the opposite. There's the chance that he'll be an exceptionally weak president who will pretty much let the civil service do whatever they want, and I guess that's ideal (from their point of view), but there's also the risk that he'll be very authoritarian, or will just start reforming entire departments.
The FBI demographics are the same as the police, and military: White uneducated but technically skilled individuals who make up above average pay. 66% of the FBI is white male, and think if it weren't for all these rules, we could bring law and order back to the country. After that, it gets speculative. Is it Clinton's shadiness? Is it just a few rogue agents? etc etc.
