Do you think people that hate Trump are now going to like Trump or his supporters? Get a clue.

The deed is done, she conceded.


The polls were wrong


The media was wrong


People have spoken and this was a rejection of the Obama administration and the corruption of Clinton.

True indeed. I had noted two weeks ago that I was struck by Michael Moore, the film-maker, whom appeared on CNN and spoke of how Donald John Trump would win the 'rust belt' states. Mr. Moore (of whom we had a thread about his prediction of a Trump win), stated something like (paraphrased):


"Those voters (in the rust belt) are not racists or in the fringe of Trump supporters. Rather, they have watched their jobs disappear for the past decades and their wages decrease. To them, a vote for Clinton would mean more of the same, while at least Donald Trump says he will bring back those middle class jobs".


I had thought that Mr. Trump was foolish to spend so much time in the area, but he was obviously correct, as was Mr. Moore.


Anyway, it was an exciting night of television! I thought Ms. Clinton had a good chance of winning during the first few hours, especially when early Texas results showed a surprisingly close race (I do not know how it ended up). Indeed, early on she had an early 10 point lead in Ohio. Imagine my surprise when that lead (that was based on only 5 percent of the vote or such), quickly evaporated, and ended up with a strong lead by Mr. Trump.


I will note that, for the past months, I had been beating the drum saying 'take the polls with a grain of salt', pointing out that Gallup was sitting out this cycle due to the unreliability of polling in todays landscape. It appears that the polls were utterly incorrect. Now, some may end up pointing to one or two that were correct, but when you have some 800 (so I read) pollsters, that a few correctly called it may be due more to happenstance rather than science. Of course, the polling industry will be studying any polls that were correct, and see if said pollsters had discovered the 'magic combination' of landlines and cell phones, etc.


I did think that Ms. Clinton would win, based on the demographics, and the fact that Mr. Trump had been alienating large segments of the population. I did see that one segment, 'white women with college degrees', broke for Mr. Trump (as well as, of course, Independents). Those whom maintained that there were 'shy' Trump supporters were apparently correct.


I actually went to bed while it was still 'up in the air' (although the outcome had become evident), yet woke up in time to read the CNN declaration that Mr. Trump had won.

I would have been thrilled to have Condoleeza Rice as president. I don't have a problem with immigrants. I have a problem with illegal immigrants.

If Hillary had won, I was prepared to accept her as my president and move forward. I hope those of you throwing tantrums can find it in yourselves to do the same.
That's BS. And by the way,Trump's third wife is an illegal immigrant so save your breath. Trump ran on racism and his racist supporters loved it. It started with calling President Obama an illegitimate Kenyan and continued on to calling Mexicans rapists and don't forget Trump and his father wouldn't rent to blacks. Everyone knows what a racist Trump is and Trump supporters love that about him because they are too.

She voted, therefore she must be a citizen.
