Donald Trump shocks world, wins presidential election in biggest upset in political History

Donald Trump overcame all odds Wednesday, riding a wave of an unprecedented populist movement to become the 45th president-elect of the United States.

The Associated Press forecast on Wednesday that the Republican presidential nominee will surpass the 270 electoral vote threshold needed to win the White House. In doing so, he completed the most massive upset in modern political history, beating Democratic challenger and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as one of the most promising fields of Republican candidates in a generation.

Almost every major forecasting aggregator, including FiveThirtyEight, RealClearPolitics, the New York Times, and HuffPost Pollster all heavily favored a Clinton victory in the lead-up to Tuesday’s race.

The insurgent Republican businessman’s candidacy was greeted as a sideshow by many media outlets and even other candidates when he declared on June 16, 2015. But Trump quickly gained popularity among Republican party voters, many of whom were drawn to his populist message on issues like international trade and immigration, inflammatory rhetoric about identity-politics issues, and promises to restore the US to previous points of perceived national glory.

Trump’s victory Tuesday came amid a wave of support among working-class and blue-collar white voters in a number of key battleground states, including Florida, North Carolina, Wisconsin, and New Hampshire. The New York businessman long claimed his nationalist pitch to voters could spur high levels of voter turnout that would help propel him to the White House.

The mood at Trump headquarters in Manhattan was joyous, as guests drank and shouted when Trump appeared to win Rust Belt states like Wisconsin and Michigan, formerly reliably Democratic states. Attendees, sporting suits and red “Make America Great Again” hats, appeared equally shocked at Trump’s massive upset.

“We’re actually going to do it,” an attendee remarked as Trump appeared to pull ahead in key states.

Just a mile away on Manhattan’s west side, the mood at Clinton’s election night party was one of equal shock and disbelief.
