I’m already sick of winning (not whining)
Donald Trump had arguably the most compelling run of any presidential candidate, successfully winning despite the incessant pelting of insults by the opposition. His uncanny ability to verbalize the will of the American people secured him constant media coverage and thousands of rally attendees at every campaign stop.
Why did Trump win? For starters, Trump and his supporters were underestimated from the beginning, which in turn skewed polls toward Democratic contender Hillary Clinton. The media’s far-too-premature coronation of Clinton provoked many third-party and Bernie Sanders backers to vote against her, or not vote at all.
With Clinton’s uninspiring campaign, it’s no wonder Trump swept the board, rallying in at least three states daily and utilizing his family and running mate Mike Pence for events. The Trump message swept through even the bluest states.
Although it might not be a popular notion in Northern New Mexico to have voted for Trump, I did because I was ready for real change. It’s easy to slap the words “hope” and “change” on a billboard, but it is another thing to deliver, something Trump will do as soon as he takes office.
Trump’s autobiography, The Art of the Deal, showcases his determination to fight to victory. His tenacity prevailed throughout the campaign as he won over communities — including Hispanics — previously ostracized by the GOP, and transformed the DNA of the Republican Party.
On Jan. 20, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, initiating a new age of politics in America. I’m confident Donald Trump will fulfill his promise to “Make America Great Again.”
