You may have seen and knew how Trump would govern. But I don't think independents, swing voters did. Remember these are the great unwashed, coach potatoes. The ones who don't pay any attention to politics until an election nears. They're certainly not political junkies. It's more important to them if their favorite sports team wins or loses than who become president or controls congress. Still, a majority of independents didn't want neither Trump nor Clinton to become their next president. 54% of independents if Gallup is correct.https://news.gallup.com/opinion/pol...ans-dislike-presidential-candidates.aspx
Fact is 25% of all Americans disliked both and didn't want neither on to become president. It boiled down to who you wanted to lose the least, not win, but lose the least. But that is water under the bridge.
I don't know what the future holds. I'm no seer or oracle. The one thing that won't change is that we'll still have the best government money can buy.
