Can you imagine being a pollster today?
What do you say? Oops?
Elections are a marvelous process. Poll after poll and column after column and then - here's the beauty - Americans get to have their own say. Mechanics and lawyers, techies and homemakers, students and retirees, the whole crew, mosey on in and mark their ballots.
Best wishes to President-Elect Trump. He pulled off an amazing feat. As an outsider, he defeated a well-funded opponent and, in the process, built a new political coalition. He has also smashed the old ultra-slick model for political candidates and replaced it with a flawed but genuine alternative.
Those who underestimate him do so at their peril.
