About

Outcome

Donald Trump won the Electoral College by a narrow margin, and will presumably become the 45th President of the United States; Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by a similar margin.

Reactions

The election of Donald Trump was both an upset (few if any pollsters predicted a Trump win, some predicting that Clinton would trounce him) and a massive shock to much of America, while many on the far Right saw it as permission to unleash some of their worst tendencies.

  • /con: the majority were shocked, dismayed, depressed
  • /pro: "this is our America now"
