Well, I didn’t see that coming. Seriously, you could knock me over with an “I Voted” sticker. Clearly, I’m not alone. Almost all of the polling was wrong. Not even Mr. Trump’s internal polling reflected what we saw last night.
I’ll post a more thoughtful take at some point. As numerous posts below make clear, I’ve been grieved by the nature and quality of our choices in this election but I viewed Mr. Trump as the less objectionable option.
I have no idea what a President Trump actually believes or what he will do. But I know very well what Ms. Clinton would have done and none of it would have been good for the nation.
I must admit however, watching the network “journalists,” pundits, and other liberal talking heads last night try to maintain their composure while reporting what was, to them, the unthinkable and unanticipated end of the world, was the most entertaining experience I’ve had in years.
I look forward to your more detailed analysis. My take is that we now have two democratic parties, one centrist and the other full-on leftist. I find myself politically homeless, wandering in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
