The initial presidential election exit polls at 5:30 last night seemed to say that Hillary Clinton would be the big winner of the 2016 Presidential Election, eight and a half hours later I was on the radio calling the election for Donald Trump. Arguably this was the biggest election upset of all time, and an end to the strangest election season in my life.
Later today when the rest of the exit polls are available we will provide a perspective on the race, explaining exactly why Trump had the big win and how the composition of the electorate changed. But Even without the final exit numbers, the winners and losers of the 2016 presidential election (along with Trump and Clinton) are totally apparent.
Donald J. Trump: When he came down that escalator and announced they said he was a joke and he had no chance to win, (I was one of them). They were wrong.
Peter Schweizer: Beginning with his first “Clinton Cash” related article in March of 2015, Peter began stripping the “Teflon” off the former secretary of state. Rather than rely on rumor and innuendo, Schweizer relied on facts and documents. He was the first to expose Hillary Clinton during this election season–and because he damaged her, others followed. BTW if you haven’t read Clinton Cash as of yet…you should do so.
Reince Priebus: They said the RNC Chairman was too establishment–that he was anti-Trump, but Reince presided over a party that was supposed to lose the Senate and the White House and won both. His spending on research and ground game were instrumental to the Trump Win.
Julian Assange: Yes hacking into email accounts is illegal. By hacking into the DNC and John Podesta’s email accounts Assange’s WikiLeaks was able to cover Hillary Clinton’s crimes and lies that the mainstream media refused to cover.
James O’ Keefe: His Project Veritas videos exposed the duplicity of the Democratic Party. One even proved the Democrats incited violence at Trump rallies.
The Republican Party: Yes I know, people said a Trump victory will destroy the GOP. However, if Trump is able to do what he promised, the Republican Party will no longer be the party of rich white folks, but will become a center-right party of the people, especially if they build on Trump’s reach out to the Black and Latino communities.
