What was the main reason behind Trump’s victory?
Donald Trump, on the contrary what majority of experts believed had a clear win over Hillary Clinton, – the lady with many blunders during her services as in the political arena as foreign secretary. According to many experts the main reason for this result was the appetite for change. When Trump spoke to the nation after the results were clear and he was the winner he commented “As I’ve said from the beginning, ours was not a campaign but rather an incredible and great movement.” It was obvious that the polarizing tactics Clinton had used did not work to capture a divided nation. The interesting part is the media had become too disconnected to detect the signals and they even behaved as if they were favoring Madam Secretary.
Experts also draw attention that this was a major mistake as but the signs were there all along. The reason is Trump’s defiance of political convention started when he announced his presidential campaign and never stopped. If the media had looked carefully enough to see this fact the result of the competition would not have been such a surprise to political analysts.
Right after the end of the race experts also draw attention that the movement referred to by Trump was fueled by working-class whites, who felt left behind amid cultural and economic changes, which is exactly what happened in the Brexit referendum in Great Britain as well, a short while ago.
