Why Trump Won

What Now?

There were of course issues like Benghazi, the State Department emails, the ongoing FBI probe into Clinton Foundation corruption, and dozens of other micro-campaigns and alternative conversations that swayed voters, but the important thing to note is that Trump and his supporters successfully communicated outside the confines of mainstream media, using social media and alternative news sites to reach out to people directly.
