Defying all odds – Donald Trump Wins White House

In one of the most turbulent and expensive presidential elections in US history, Donald Trump has beaten all odds to become the 45th president of the United States.

Despite various polls pointing to almost certain win for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump won by a landslide victory, winning big in key states such as Florida, Iowa and Michigan.

While the mainstream media struggle to deal with last night’s shock result, political commentators such as Nigel Farage have never doubted that Trump could win.

Farage, who is largely known as the man who led Brexit. has consistently drawn parallels between the US election and the UK’s decision to leave the European Union last June. He cites a growing anti-establishment movement spreading across the western world in which “people have had enough of ‘party politics’ and are looking for real change”.

Of all the running commentary on where the Clinton campaign went wrong, it was perhaps this tweet that summed it up best:

One big question that remains unanswered in all of this is: How did the media and political analysts get it so wrong? Was Trump right when he called them biased and dishonest? It would certainly explain their unfair, negative coverage of Trump.

At the same time, it could be that secret Trump supporters kept them off their guard. It has been said that the white rural vote was largely overlooked in this election as well as the views of independent voters.
