Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin all went to Trump. The 70-year-old won almost all the states he needed to secure his seat in the White House. Clinton won in states like Virginia and Nevada, but they were not enough to make her the first female U.S. President in history.
Trump was criticized in most key states for not having a well-oiled political machine. But his frequent visits to these states served him good. For instance, Trump visited Wisconsin six times. Clinton, on the other hand, did not make a single trip to the state, according to Heavy. It turned out that Wisconsin, which appeared to be in Clinton?s side, was won by Trump.

Trump would usually address the grievances of Americans during his campaigns. His message was loud and clear. That is to ?Make America Great Again.?
Exit polls conducted by CNN show that 53 percent of the men said they voted for Trump. He won 58 percent of white voters. That includes 63 percent of white men and 53 percent white women.
Many believed that the October announcement of a rise in Obamacare rates is one of the reasons why rural voters opted to elect Trump instead of Clinton. It seems the news about the FBI looking back into Clinton?s email issues and other corruption cases against her worked in Trump?s favor too. Meanwhile, ?how to impeach a president? also tops Google searches.
