I had predicted the Trump landslide and written about about my prediction.
How did I do it?
On the basis of the candidates' past character.
Clinton, right from the beginning, has shown herself to be corrupt, a pathological liar and a member of what Thomas Sowell called "the Anointed": we're utterly intellectually and morally superior to you basket of deplorables, so we'll condescend to you and make rules that you have to follow but we don't.
Trump, on the other hand, is not anywhere near perfect, but he's three times better than Clinton. Married, what? Three times, gamed the system right from the beginning - but knew exactly what to say to appeal to over 50 million people out here in Flyover Land, which is where I live.
The "elites" (meaning morons) on the East and West coasts completely ignored Flyover Land. Now they're talking about how they completely misread it. To them Flyover Land is just an undifferentiated damnation populated by inbred hillbillies who fart in church and scratch their balls in public. It's all just Mississippi/Alabama/Georgia/Missouri/Tennessee/Kentucky/Montana/Idaho/North Dakota to them. No difference between any of it.
Years ago I had a woman (a dumb woman) tell there me there was nothing in between LA and New York except Chicago.
Also years ago I owned a taxi. Five years, actually. It was the most fun job I ever had. It was in St. Louis, the middle of Flyover Land.
I once picked up a young woman, maybe 25 at the most (from the East coast) who is all seriousness (and who had some dread in her voice) asked me if everyone in St. Louis was "really religious." You know - clinging to our guns and religion, as the outgoing half-breed homo described us.
I told this foolish woman people here were no different than anyone else. She probably thought everyone belonged to the Klan and were itching to hang blacks and Jews from the nearest lamp post.
I suggest you read (but not buy) The Plot Against America, by the mentally ill Phillip Roth. In his novel you get 20 miles outside of New York city and you're in Deliverance, Georgia, which is full of Nazis. That's what the self-Anointed think about Flyover Land - Nazis, the Klan, rabid fundamentalists who’d make everyone go to church three times a day or else in the stocks with you! That is, before we burn you at the stake.
And that's why Trump won and the Hildabeast lost.
Perhaps the MSM should open a bureau in Flyover Land. Except for the fact the MSM is almost dead, which they still don't know and will never believe.
