Donald Trump won. I told you he would.

Not “might” win. Not “could win under the following circumstances.” In June, I wrote: “He’s going to win as surely as the sun rises in the east, as certainly as high tide follows low, and as definitively as Steph Curry laid waste to the Oklahoma Thunder’s defense.”

Now, you don’t have to like it. Many of you didn’t like it at the time. Readers bombarded my email box with angry messages. How could I possibly think this “racist,” “sexist,” “ignorant buffoon” would get within 1,000 miles of the White House? He’s a fascist! He’s a moron! He’s going to ruin the country!

So you say. You know what else he is? President-elect. Here’s why…

    Was there ever a nanosecond of doubt that Donald Trump would win the presidency, on time and way under budget?

      I’m sure glad he won – but I’d be a liar if I said that I was as confident as you were.

    He won because she was scum

    Great stuff … add to #6 “Supreme Court and Immigration” (this explains the Catholic, Evangelical, and poor, non-college-educated white female vote) … I still can’t figure out how Trump got more Hispanic vote than Romney in Florida.

    I hope the Globalist free traders take note: the map hasn’t been this Red since the 1980’s.

    You think we won Wi, MI, & PA on immigration?
    No. We won them on Trade.

    The fight against the Globalists in the GOP is just beginning.
    Trump & the voters on one side – Ryan and the donors on the other.
    All fighting for the hearts and minds of 200 spineless coward representatives in the middle.

    The game is afoot.

      Dude, we won Minnesota minus the margin of fraud and Somali transplants.

    Close to 1 in 3 Hispanics voted for Trump. This is perhaps the statistic from the 2016 election with the most hopeful significance for the future. It means there is a strong minority among Hispanics that does not like the divisive ethnic identity politics pushed by Democrats in recent decades. There is this large group that wants more to be part of a strong common American national identity. The more we can grow this proportion, the greater the incentives for the Democratic party to back away from its disastrous embrace of identity politics, the sooner we can return to our traditional politics, where both major parties champion a strong common American national identity.
