I am not really into politics much lately. I too thought Clinton would win. I will just admit that I was like everyone else in the media. That is, early on I was saying why Trump would lose. Then, without skipping a beat, I started pontificating why he won.
Bottom line is everyone is now trying to say he won for the reasons they hope he won for – whatever that is. But really I just don’t think anyone knows why he won. It was a crazy election with tons of issues and it is very hard to sort out why he won at this point. (will time passing make it any easier?) Anyone who says he won for this reason or that reason is probably just expressing what they liked about him or disliked about Clinton. They are likely partly right, but its really just speculation.
That’s why I am squarely agnostic as to why Trump won.
