Why Trump won the 2016 presidential election
It’s about time we call out the morons who object to Trump’s election victory. There’s hardly a day that goes by that there’s not an update on how many popular votes Hillary got over Donald Trump. It’s like the election is still going on and she’s in the lead.
Okay, there’s little doubt that statistically Trump should have been gone after the first primary debate. As it happens Mr. Trump out-smarted the “smart.” He took advantage of the overconfidence of his competition. His competition underestimated Mr. Trump and his prowess at winning just about anything he sets his mind to. I’m sure this really grates on some folks, but Trump is standing in the winner’s circle right now.
Barack Obama is able to grasp the reality that even in sports the team that plays a better game and statistically out performs the opposing team doesn’t necessarily win any given game. Take for example the Dallas Cowboys/ Minnesota Vikings game last weekend. Minnesota had more yards passing, more first downs, a better passing percentage … but lost the game.
Let’s look at MLB for a minute … just because a team gets more hits, less errors, more walks, less strike-outs and has a better pitcher doesn’t mean the opposing team can’t win the game.
How about boxing? Click right HERE to understand the idea that fighting “smart” often makes a winner out of someone who statistically should lose.

Trump was the under-dog throughout the primaries. He went up against an incredibly talented, qualified, well-funded group of mostly professional Republican politicians. He spanked every one of them badly, or if you choose, “bigly!” Stunned beyond belief were (and still are ) the Republicans and conservatives alike. The Democrats were rejoicing! They worked hard to get Bernie Sanders eliminated, leaving the media darling and mother of the left, “most qualified,” most experienced candidate in modern history, with a better than 90% chance of winning to run against the novice Donald Trump. She had more experience and more money. The media, Republicans, #Never Trumpsters, foreign governments, folks she owes very big time, the left, the right, the in-between all working for her. Trump was obnoxious, crass, rude and certainly not a polished candidate with even a prayer to defeat the historical first woman president.
What happened? I’ll tell you. “Smart” won. Toughness and focus won. In a ‘nut-shell’ over confidence and underestimating the opposition lost the election for Hillary.
I sincerely believe that if Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio or any other Republican had won the nomination for the Republican presidential candidate, we would be witnessing Hillary Clinton getting outfitted for a stunning pant-suit worthy only of the first woman President of the United States.
Side notes here. So, what lesson has the Democrats and the left learned? Nothing. They are doubling down on the same crap that got them beat. They are moving farther left. The media is working hard to undermine Trump’s presidency before he’s even sworn in, in an effort to save a face that has egg all over it.

How fitting for the 2016 election!
