Well I did Not see that coming

Donald Trump won the race for President of the United States.

I seriously did not think he was going to win. Yes I brought into what the polls were saying and it turned out that….

They were wrong!

Now many of you maybe asking how could that be, how could the polls be wrong. Well I don’t know the answer for sure however one thing nobody seems to talk about is that the people who are taking the polls could skew the results towards the way they want things to go. In this case that Hillary Clinton was doing better then she actually was.

Now that latter would have to mean that most likely Donald Trump was right when he said that people who were voting for him weren’t saying so when interviewed for the polls.

Which yes I could see that happening.

I mean would anyone really want to admit to some strange person that they support the person that nearly a majority of people did not like?

I don’t think so.

People think that pollsters did such a bad job at calling this race that one person tweeted.

Here is a list of recent polls that pollsters got wrong.

So now you can see why it’s plausible to think that people who are taking the polls could skew the results in the favor of whatever side they are on? Because I sure can.

Anyway I went to bed last night thinking that Hillary Clinton was going to win. Not because I supported her, but because I believed what all the polls were saying. Which was that she was going to win because she seemed to easily get the 270 electoral votes needed to win.

 

I find it kind of laughable that that people are saying it will be hard to explain it to kids how Trump could be President, which yes it probably will be. However I don’t think people should be having the President of the United States teaching their children what is right or wrong. That is the parents responsibility, to say that the President of the United States should be teaching a child is just lazy parenting if you ask me.

My mother taught me and my sisters right form wrong and all those other life lessons, she didn’t tell us to look up to the Bill Clinton, then President of the United States, or any other elected official to learn those lessons. Though of course we didn’t live in a time of social media an all that, though the fact still applies that children shouldn’t be learning what is right and wrong, or what they should and shouldn’t do from the President of the United States.

Another thing is that it’s not like explaining a Clinton Presidency would be simple. I mean the FBI, more importantly the Director, said that she lied. She lied to the American People and possibly Congress. How anybody could tell a child that it would have been alright for a President to lie when they are taught not to lie is beyond me. I mean are there actually people out their that find easier to explain why a person lied to those who are told not to lie?

It’s time to face facts that neither Candidate was perfect and a lot of explaining would have needed to be done to children no matter who had won.
