President-elect Donald Trump: The Media Got it Wrong!
By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine
The media kept telling us what the candidates were doing but failed to report on what ordinary people were thinking. There were only six newspapers in America that endorsed Donald Trump while eighty went for Hillary Clinton. This makes Trump’s victory even more stunning.
The pollsters got it totally wrong. They were forced to backpedal and change their tune. Nate Silver with all his polling experience couldn’t see a Trump victory. But America has had its Brexit moment. People are fed up with the Establishment.
We were told that Clinton was sitting pretty. The media gave the impression that she had already won and we were just going through the motions. But Silver and others were wrong. Trump’s internal poll showed that many voters were angry with the business-as-usual politics in Washington and wanted change.
