Breaking Down How Donald Trump Won The U.S. Election

For some, the news of Donald Trump winning the presidency was a total surprise. So how did he win the U.S. election?

Trump's win is one of the most shocking and unexpected outcomes, for both sides, of any past presidential election in the United States. The polls and the media were wrong.

One major factor in this was the inability to predict who each demographic would vote for. Trump got the mostly white, male vote, while Clinton got the minority female vote as expected. But overall, fewer white, black, Hispanic, and Asian-American people voted Democrat in this election than they did in 2012, something the polls did not predict.

What were the other factors that lead to Trump's unprecedented win? Jules Suzdaltsev has more in today's Seeker Daily video.
