Why Trump Won

Many of you are scratching your heads as to how a politician with 30 years of experience like Hillary Clinton could lose the election. The bigger question, though, is why Trump won.

The guy who just grabs ’em by the pussy. How did that guy win a trip to the Oval Office?

There are many theories. Charts. Maps. Commentaries. Racism, white privilege, the millennials, Bernie, third party candidates.  You will hear many reasons for this November surprise.
