Why did polls get it so wrong? Politics as we knew it is over

Harry de Quetteville writes:

The tweet from the “republican” pollster Frank Luntz as the polls closed said it all:

All eyes will be in Virginia for 2017.

Tim Kaine’s Senate seat will open up, and they will have a special election.

In case I wasn’t clear enough from my previous tweets:

Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the United States.

Like everyone else in the prediction game, Mr Luntz was served up a feast of his own words to consume over the next few hours. First came the odd unnerving slice of reality. Then came a few massive helpings of humble pie.

One by one, all their predictions, all their forecasts, their obsessively mined data, their experience at calling previous elections fell apart. It all counted for nothing. Trump was demolishing the pollsters, just as he demolished his rivals to be Republican nominee, just as he – at the time of writing – looked set to demolish Hillary Clinton’s chances of assuming the presidency.

TRUMP PREPARING TO ADDRESS THE NATION

AP has called Pennsylvania for Mr Trump.

He is apparently coming out to address his victory party, but awaiting confirmation he is projected to pass 270 electoral college votes.

Will Mrs Clinton concede?!

‘Trump understands business, that’s why I voted for him’

Harriet Alexander has been speaking to a New Jersey-born Cuban businesswoman about why she is celebrating Mr Trump’s success:

Barbara Garcia, 37, who owns property and mortgage brokers, says her main reason for supporting Mr Trump is that he understands business. “What Obama did to us in terms of healthcare and the minimum wage was ridiculous,” she said. “He forced us to get rid of employees. “You can’t order me to pay for my workers’ healthcare without knowing how much I make. I agree with everyone having healthcare – but just not penalizing those who employ them.” Her parents came to the US from Cuba, and this also influenced her vote, she said. “My parents came here for freedom. And that’s what is most important to me. “People say I should support a woman for president – well, sure, but just not that woman. “And I know Trump has said some bad things – at times, I was like: ‘Put a sock in it.’ But I can deal with that. As long as he fixes this country.”

Silvio Morraz, 51, a builder from Nicaragua, says Trump is “the new Reagan. He’ll build the wall, stop drugs, stop criminals. I’m so happy.”
