The Election is Over: Trump Wins

Nov 9, 2016

President-elect Trump. Sounds weird, doesn’t it.

Businessman Donald Trump. Real-estate mogul Donald Trump. Reality TV Star Donald Trump….those words roll off the tongue. But the news of Trump going to the White House has shocked America, including Connecticut.

This hour, we’ll talk about the results and the resulting feeling here. We’ll talk about a path to victory that included an overwhelming tide of non-college educated White men, but also included a very big showing among white women - a group many thought would be turned off by Trump’s rhetoric. It’s a path that took key battleground states - and included victories in all corners of the U.S. It’s the first Wheelhouse in what seems like a new world.
