Why Did President Trump Win The 2016 Election?


The results of the 2016 election caused some Americans to wonder why President Trump emerged as the winner. In fact, this is such a common question that CNN compiled a possible list of reasons for the President’s victory. The reasons on this list included, but were not limited to social media, white women, Russia, etc. President Trump’s victory can be attributed to two simple reasons: his policies resonated with the American people and he proved himself to be a fit and capable leader. The 45th President ran his campaign on placing American values and the American people first. Apparently many people were impressed and voted for him when the time came.

Attributing the President’s win to Russia, racism, and the like is a tactic employed by radical Trump critics who are in denial. Apparently some people struggle with comprehending that there is no conspiracy theory. Much of the shock is engendered by the media’s overt support for Hillary Clinton. This support manifested in the form of supposed polls that promised Mr. Trump would lose. The Daily Kos even declared that Hillary had a 92% chance of winning the election. Obviously, that did not happen, thus explaining the frenzy. This should serve as an example as to why trusting fake news is ill advised.
