It was Russia. Made me love Trump. Still do.


Out of fairness we should consider what Democrats say. That everything we heard and everything we saw was dictated by Vladimir Putin.

He was much more powerful than our President Obama.

Media in what way?


The incessant negativity I believe forced many a voter to reject the news and vote, almost, in defiance of the majority of news outlets.

Hence what was supposedly a shoe-in became a loss for Hillary.

For me it was all of the dirt coming out on HRC, the dems, and the Establishment in general. It is obvious and was obvious, the level of corruption involving the Clinton's and their pack. Trump at the time seemed like an outsider who although may very well be playing us, showed a glimmer of hope. Regardless, anyone is better than she is. As far as Trump, time will tell.

Either way big things are coming. Good/bad whichever, it is upon us. I am excited. Ill take it either way it comes with positive thoughts.

I mean Putin is without a doubt stronger than Obama. But if there was Russian collusion it was between the Dems and Russia.

What Clinton did in the past




What Clinton *might* do in the future if elected


It was the work she has done and said she would continue to do for women and the elderly that made me vote for her.
I did it because she seemed like the best choice for my poor, sick, weak, old mother.

The media had little influence over me because I didn't watch it at that time. I got most of my information about trump and hillary online. I would say over half of what I know about those two came from research done here on ats.

Flat out #10. I would posit that just as many people voted for the current POTUS specifically to keep HRC out of the WH and selling our Country to the highest bidder as voted for him because of feeling disenfranchised.

9) What Trump *might* do in the future if elected


I'm still convinced that Trump won by convincing people he could/would:

1) Repeal Obamacare.
2) Uphold federal laws on illegal immigration.
3) Bring back law and order in general (end corruption).

They ALL were professional politicians...We hear the same speeches every 4 years...They ALL are anti-American globalists...Trump was the only anti-globalist, pro America person running for President of any of the Parties...They ALL ran for the 'Party'...Trump ran for the people...How could any American have voted against Trump???

I would add as most important:

The "anybody but Hillary" vote.

It's a shame that we didn't have a better alternative, but the anti Hillary feeling would have elected Mickey Mouse if necessary.




Thumbs up!

You know, if the Democrats run a candidate that wasn't a Progressive jackass, I might vote for them again.

From this list of "influences" ....

What was the most influential ?


1) What Trump said about Clinton

2) What Clinton said about Trump

3) What Trump said about Himself

4) What Clinton said about Herself

5) What other people said about Trump

6) What other people said about Clinton

7) What Trump did in the past

8) What Clinton did in the past

9) What Trump *might* do in the future if elected

10) What Clinton *might* do in the future if elected


What "percentage" of each influence determined the election result and why ?

How did the MSM in general influence the above influences and the election ?

How did advertising in general influence the above influences and the election ?







I don't think any of those were the primary factor. Of those I'd have to pick 5 and 6, because the media falls into that. The biggest factor was Clinton just running an awful campaign.
