Where did it all go wrong?

Donald J Trump

I woke up this morning to the news that Donald Trump is the new President of The United States Of America!

At first I thought I was still dreaming but to my shock and horror I soon realised this was real.

Going to bed last night I was watching the results come in and saw that Trump was ahead by a few but went to bed quite content that Hillary Clinton would claw it back as there was no way a man who is hated and feared by millions around the world, would be voted in as one of the most powerful men in the world.

Listening to the fallout this morning on the radio and TV as presenters, journalists and civilians around the world reacted to the shock news, it’s clear that the pollsters and polling analysts got it incredibly wrong and I have to ask, how did this happen?

In the lead up to the election, Hillary was almost certain to be crowned the winner of this bizarre presidential race and yet here we are on the 9th November 2016 coming to terms with the fact that reality TV star Donald Trump is the new President.

The pollsters are certainly hanging their heads in shame this morning. In the lead up to the election the press reported on the polling predictions, The New York Times reported Hillary Clinton had an 85% chance of winning, The Huffington Post gave her 98.3% chance of winning and the list goes on, so what happened?

Were people not telling the truth and ashamed to admit they would vote for Trump and yet when they got to the polling stations gave him their number 1?

  • Did Trumps campaign of ‘Making America Great Again’, prove to be an exciting prospect that voters craved?
  • Did Trump get into the heads of the white working class American community who Hillary may have dismissed as they don’t have a history of voting?
  • Were people just voting against Hillary instead of voting ‘for’ Trump?
  • Did Hillary lose because America was not ready for a female President?

So many questions that leave not only America, but the world baffled. The experts got it totally wrong so lets hope that with the benefit of hindsight that the same experts can figure out why.

It certainly is a crazy time to be alive and it will be very interesting to see what lies ahead!
