In perhaps the most unprecedented upset in political history, Donald Trump is poised to win the Presidential election. Trump had less money, less Party support, a narrower demographic, and a weak ground game. Despite all odds, Trump is poised to win — again.
How Donald Trump Won
So how did Donald Trump win? His path to victory required winning major swing states and flipping a couple of Democratic states. Trump did exactly that — winning North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, Iowa, and Wisconsin to form a solid path to victory.
Things looked bad for the Democrats once it was reported that Ron Johnson (R) was reelected to the Senate, defeating Russ Feingold (D), who had a dominating lead in the polls.
As of 12:15 AM EST, here’s where Trump stands. He currently leads New Hampshire, Michigan, and Arizona as well. Trump is expected to win Alaska.
