Trumpocalypse Now: How Trump Won One of the Greatest David v. Goliath Victories in the History of Politics

I think it’s safe to say that the opposition to Donald Trump—in both intensity and scope—is greater than for any other president, and will stay that way. For many of those most upset, I think it’s the fact that a ridiculously boorish celebrity with no respect for how their great game of American politics is played beat them at it so badly.

What other than pride could have produced the willful blindness to actual events that prevented so many experts from even considering the possibility that Hillary would lose?

It is surely because of—and not in spite of—this attitude toward his candidacy from the very beginning, that gave Donald Trump the opportunity to do just what he did—pull off one of the greatest David v. Goliath victories in the history of politics.
