Donald Trump ran the smartest, most unorthodox election campaign I have ever seen and he won an astonishing victory.
Hillary Clinton did the exact opposite. Her campaign was a stunning disaster that totally lacked political nous or any understanding of voter sensitivity.
Pollsters were discredited forever.
The sun came up yet again the next morning.
There will be another Presidential Election in four years.
In the meantime, we will survive.
So, with positive minds, let’s have a look at what happened and talk about what we do next.
Never in my life have I seen a Presidential Candidate with such an incredible capacity to get on the front pages every day without fail and say outrageous things people will never forget.
Not once have I seen such an infamously rabid and rude capitalist with no evident compassion for others suddenly transform himself into the friend and saviour of the downtrodden, doing it is such a way that they actually believed him.
Even more incredible is the way he was able, time and time again, to overcome dreadful black marks on his character (such as being proven to be a sexual predator on multiple occasions) yet rise in the polls the next day and stay there.
Some months back, I wrote articles and made radio broadcasts saying he would win, even though I hoped he wouldn’t. I based my argument on the belief that Clinton was doing everything she could to lose as she made blunder after blunder.
The fragility of her campaign was revealed in the Primaries. She lost 26 states to Bernie Sanders and, in all 50 states, he won 80% of the under 30’s vote even though he was a 72 year old socialist. Most of those young people stayed at home last week.
