No major results in yet.

Exit polls have Trump doing the same with Hispanic voters as Romney did.

Oh God...is Donald Trump really going to be President of the United States?  What kind of Bosch-esque nightmare are we waking into?

I am mildly surprised at the results so far. I just didn't think there were enough of us out there that were sick and tired of the status quo to change it.

Want it back, or, got duped into thinking someone was bringing it back. But ... you lose. Russia wins.

Russia AND North Korea. NK wanted Trump to win also. We all know NK hates America.

Donald Trump is an evil man, a classic sociopath. He will have more in common with Hugo Chavez, Robert Mugabe, Benito Mussolini, or Slobodan Milosevic. Under his Administration if you did not support him you will get nothing from him. He is the political figure that I can least describe with the word "Christian".

He has pulled the biggest con game upon a little over half the electorate, promising to hurt the other half.

Whatever pride I ever had in being an American I no longer have.

OK -- considering that it is white people who will have voted in that monster, I feel shame at being white.

If you voted for Donald Trump I do not hate you for that. But I certainly hate the vote that you cast.

Enjoy the replay of the Great Depression. Maybe that will be what it will take for Americans to get a 'new birth of freedom'.

The election is over. PA goes for Trump.

I was wrong; my prediction failed. Back to the drawing board; maybe. Maybe someday. But my plans for a new book are over, and I will take down my video.
I had a good record, but this is a black mark upon it. It's 2000 again. I still can't predict elections. Neither can almost any pundit or pollster. The guys who predicted it correctly were the amateur Trump lovers on you tube.

I think the demographic changes regarding millennials is suspect.

We are divided by race. Whites still rule. Blacks are in great danger of being shot. Riots may erupt.

Many species in the world will die. That's what I feel most sorry for. We are killing life on the planet, and that process will speed up.

The free market is still out there regarding alternative energy. But it's going to change too slowly to avoid many disasters. Some of the people of the South who voted for Trump may be flooded out soon. I would not be confident of property values in Miami Beach!

We urban intellectuals are perhaps-irreparably separated from what we see as ignorant hicks in the rural heartland. They live on emotion only.

Maybe you guys can define what you mean by "status quo" The statement that you wanted to change it, makes no sense.

People have to learn the hard way. Global markets are already struggling now once they realized how things were turning out with Trump leading. Foreigners appear to be wise to his reputation. Enjoy destruction America. You made your bed. Lie in it and try explaining it to the future generations.

I think that's right. The Democrats bet on Hillary because she had the qualifications and the support of the leaders. She won the primaries fair and square. But many Bernie supporters either thought that Hillary cheated (just more of the ignorant conspiracy theory out there, and I should say it's also urban, I stand corrected on that to a degree), or that she wasn't enough of a change so they stayed home. Voters wanted "change," but what is the change?

There is "anti-globalism." Nationalism is on the rise; it's the end of the globalist dream of 1989.

The people of Syria will continue to suffer badly. I feel so sorry for them. They will have to leave their country, and somehow find homes in other places. We won't be helping them at all. Many more will die.

Trump is an entertainer who inspires confidence in his strength. Hillary was perceived as too weak. It comes down partly to that primal American emotion. The USA is not ready for women leadership at this level.

A lot of my predictions for the future hinged on Trump losing. I forecast a stable economy for the next couple of years. I can't stick with that prediction. I do think another crash is possible soon now. I think the danger of both civil war and world has has increased, and it could come sooner than my cycles predicted. Suffice to say I don't have much confidence in some of my predictions now. The one about a possible civil war is of course still on the table. Tribalism reigns. And lots more gun violence, and death of species as I said. But Trump voters don't care about those things. They want to be part of the Trump Nation. Make Amerika Great Again.

To Rags: my stock market prediction is hereby cancelled. Make of that what you will, if anything.

I am sad to say my quiet prediction that I kept to myself came to pass. I predicted civil war. Some here did not believe me. I predicted Trump winning. I predicted a rise in Nationalism and all of the hatred boiling over to this which some Dems have pushed Repubs towards. I predicted another crash worse than the last one. I do not say it though till I know for sure. That is going by gut instinct. Being an ISFJ stinks sometimes. Now you see why I was so scared. I do not go by stars. I go by actions now, in the past and predict the reaction.

I'm not banking on Trump to change the status quo.  In fact I voted for him to preserve the status quo of a liberal democracy for one more secular cycle.  Clinton would have appointed Supreme Court justices that would have gutted the first and second amendments, hastening the shift to an autocratic government as warfare shift from firearms to nuclear weapons.
