Top 10 Reasons Why Trump Won the 2016 Election

The Top Ten
1 He won 4 major Democrat battleground states

People wanted change. And whether or not you like Trump, him winning usually Democrat states is symbolic of that.

It's true, I'm a registered Democrat but I voted for him.

2 Trump had most of the non-college degree votes

Or in other words, Trump won the 2016 election because the most uneducated people in the US voted for him. In fact, it is very logical why he won. A great majority of Americans lack common and political knowledge, and you must have a majority of votes to win.

That makes me totally in favor of only allowing those with college degrees to vote.

3 Hillary had few ads or appearances in the battleground states
4 Trump made more appearances in battleground states
5 Some Hillary supporters switched to Trump at the last minute

I knew this was going to happen.

6 Hillary got small states

Well, I mean that besides the big states like California, she only got small states after that.

7 Americans are stupid
8 Hillary had email stuff come up at the last minute

People are much more willing to vote for someone they dislike rather than someone they distrust. Even if I don't like person X, if they are trustworthy, then I will likely be willing to hand responsibility to them. Much more willing, anyway, to give them responsibility than person Y, who, while they're a nice guy, they're also fickle and you can't trust them.

Trump is person X, who is a bit of a jerk, but you always know he's honest (seriously, read his Twitter. If he thinks it, he's saying it). Clinton was person Y, who was a bit more popular, but less trustworthy.

9 Americans did not want another dynasty

Trump defeated two of America's top political dynasty families, the Bush family during the primaries, and the Clinton family during the election. America has had more than enough Bushes and Clintons. No doubt there is a young Kennedy out there lurking, who we will see in the next decade or two.

No, they want a new emperor. Imperialist Trump is the best for that position.

10 Because he said he will "make America great again"
The Contenders
11 Hillary didn't get as many votes as Obama in the 2012 election from Hispanics, blacks, and women
12 He's potentially the better choice of the 2 major candidates
13 People think he is funny
14 Trump had greater momentum throughout some battleground states
15 Hillary kept slipping up
16 Memes

This may seem like a joke, but Donald Trump was a meme. So maybe that influenced people?

17 No one wanted 4-8 more years of Obamacare
18 Because Americans are brainwashed by populism
19 He was the only chance left of electing a Republican

It said so on Fox News days before the election.

20 Only Republicans showed up to vote
21 Because the Alt Left was too mild
22 When deciding who to vote for, many said it was choosing the "lesser of the 2 evils"
23 As a protest vote against identity politics
24 He does not support abortion
25 Trump isn't a feminist
