GRADING PRESIDENT TRUMP'S PERFORMANCE
FACTS ARE VERIFIED WITH LINKS TO LIBERAL, INDEPENDENT AND CONSERVATIVE SOURCES
Below are results Trump won by county (in red):
(May 5 to November 7, 2016): Historic. Shocking. Stunning. The largest upset in American political history. It was the first time a non-political outsider defeated such an experienced, established, insider politician for the Presidency of the United States. In fact Trump was the first US president to be elected without any government or military experience. The victory by President Trump was extraordinary on so many levels. Let's point out a few.
1: He shattered the GOP records with small donors.
2: He turned SEVEN states from blue (Democrat) to red (Republican). Those states were WI, PA, IA, MI, FL, OH and Maine's 2nd Congressional district. They all voted Democrat in 2012. The states of PA and MI had not voted Republican since 1988. WI had not voted Republican since 1984.
3: Trump won the most counties since Ronald Reagan's demolishing victory in 1984
4: He secured victories in at least 83% of the counties in the United States
6: In fact Trump won an astounding 3,084 counties in America. Clinton won only about 420 counties.
9: He got the most votes ever as a Republican President
10: Trump performed stronger among Black and Hispanic voters than Mitt Romney did as the Republican nominee in 2012 (pretty ironic considering how his adversaries branded Trump as a "racist").
11: Want to talk ironic? It was the first time in American history that a woman managed a victorious presidential campaign. Kellyanne Conway was picked by Donald Trump to revive his struggling campaign. And boy did she ever. This, after Trump was accused by many on the left as "anti-woman" and "sexist".
14: As a matter of fact, Trump ran the most cost-effective presidential campaign in modern history.
15: Trump got more union votes than any other Republican since 1984
16: Trump's Presidential Inaugural Committee has raised a record $90 million-plus in private donations, far more than President Barack Obama's two inaugural committees.
17: Trump turned 209 of the 676 counties that had twice supported Obama.
18: Trump’s margin among whites without a college degree was the largest among any Presidential candidate since 1980.
Considering all the above points, Trump's victory was even that much more impressive when factoring in he was running against the would be first female President of the United States, much of the establishment Republicans publicly not supporting him (boy do they feel silly now), staggering media biased coverage, arguably the two most powerful political machines in history (Clintons and Obamas) stumping for Hillary, and the heavy Hollywood superstars holding Hillary concerts........it was truly a miracle Trump was able to pull it off. This victory proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the "forgotten people" do indeed have a voice.
NOTE: After President Trump's impressive victory, 68 whining Democrats boycotted Trump's Inuagration.
