All the so called political experts in media were sure Hillary was going to win big. They couldn’t have been more wrong. Now that Trump has won, take a walk down memory lane by watching the videos below.
In this video, the first MSNBC commentator says:
“A lot of people have no idea that Trump is headed for a historic defeat, that’s why I think the larger the defeat, in a sense, the healthier it will be for the Republican Party, at least if it doesn’t bring Paul Ryan’s speakership down with him and there’s a healthy divided government. Because it might be a wake up call to those Republicans who have existed in this little thought bubble of their own that this isn’t a winning form of politics.”
In the next video, a CNN commentator says:
“Tomorrow night I think when Hillary Clinton wins that Donald Trump will have lost this election from the very first day he announced and took off after Mexicans.”

Could they have been more wrong? Is it possible?
Lots of print journalists got it wrong, too. Check out this article from the Observer:
Hillary Clinton Will Win by a Landslide Against Donald Trump
I try to minimize election predictions—especially long before the voting on election day—but I consider this prediction one of the easiest I have ever made.
Hillary Clinton will win by a landslide against Donald Trump. I expect her to win 46 states, and if I am wrong, it is equally likely she will win more than 46 states in November, rather than less.
FBI Director James Comey will announce that he is not recommending a criminal prosecution in the Clinton email case, which will give her a tremendous boost. To understand the full magnitude of Clinton’s coming victory consider the news over the last week, which is a sneak preview of the future.
Thank you for playing. Game over.
