You have learned about candidates, campaigns, policy platforms, party politics, style, publicity, money,stumping, the media (and its positive and negative elements), debates, polls, interest groups, conventions, primaries,caucuses, the Electoral College, and inaugurations (to name just a few).In November 2016, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States with 306 electoral votes.

I’m not interested in your personal politics, so leave that out of your answer. I don’t care if you think he’s thegreatest, and I don’t care if you think the world is ending. I want a dispassionate and objective analysis (regardless ofyour personal politics). Stated simply: Put your politics aside, be an analyst, and explain why he won.There are obviously thousands of different details you can go into. As such, I will look for creative answers that reflectan overall knowledge of US Politics and elections from this course.. So long as you demonstrate good logic in yourargument, you’ll do fine.
