What was portrayed as conventional wisdom and unquestionable data, all proved to be wrong on Election Day. The American people went against all odds and to elect the “underdog”, and unconventional figure like Donald Trump which the mainstream media said had no chance against Clinton.
Since very early this morning the Decision Desk stated that Trump had 286 electoral votes, which placed him over the top. Not long after, the guys from the Associated Press made the call for Trump.
