Many consultants and politcos were shocked when Donald Trump became President on Election Night 2016, insisting that it was impossible for his revolutionary campagn and candidacy to win the election.
But for author Larry Schweikart - one of a ragtag group of amateur politicos and political activists called "The Deplorables" who had been publishing shockingly accurate polls and predictions while other polls only peddled lies - and co-author Joel Pollak - a Breitbart News senior editor following Trump on the campaign trail through all of the events of the election -Trump's win was a near certainty. Schweikart and Pollak watched the Trump campaign build a powerful coalition between working Americans from both parties who just want their interests represented; they saw the momentum that the mainstream media and pollsters completely missed and refused to observe; and now, in How Trump Won, they tell the whole incredible story of the impossible election: from the early poll predictions of "The Deplorables" to the campaign trail to Election Night.
