Post-Election Analysis November 9, 2016Posted by geoff in News.
A lot of pundits (pretty much all of them, really) have been wailing and moaning about Trump’s victory last night.
“How could he win?”
“How could we have been so wrong?”
“What was wrong with the polls?”
Then they go off into demographic analysis, hunting for “shy voters” and “white blue-collar workers” that may have fallen through the polling cracks.
But there’s a simple reason staring at them. A reason that’s been in front of their faces for a couple of years:
Trump was right when he said that he knows how to win.
He told us that over and over throughout his campaign. He said it in the mocking faces of the media. And then he proved that he was better at politics than they were, and now they’re reeling in shock and horror.
As I’ve said before, I’m not convinced that Donald Trump is a good choice for president. But so far he’s done exactly what he said he would do, even when it seemed impossible. So maybe, just maybe…
…he might actually make America great again.
