The final votes are all in and it was indeed a landslide victory for Donald Trump, who defeated the Wicked Witch of Benghazi 306 electoral votes to 232, very close to what we predicted months ago. Our last prediction, posted early in the morning of Election Day, nailed it!
This GOP primary and presidential election campaign have been incredible. Against all odds, against a maliciously adverse mainstream media, Donald Trump has pulled it off, setting many records along the way.
Be sure to watch our video at the end of this article of Donald Trump, Jr., pictured above, putting his father over the top in the delegate count at the GOP convention. Now, here are some of the records Donald Trump set en route to what the talking head pundits assured us was impossible….
From The Gateway Pundit
- The Republican Field was the largest field for a Major Party in a Presidential Race Ever with 17 bona fide candidates when the race began.
- Hillary Clinton was the first Female to win a major party nomination for President
- Kellyanne Conway is the first Female campaign manager to RUN AND WIN a Presidential Campaign!
- When sworn in, Donald Trump will become the oldest President in US History to become President (Reagan was 69). Hillary is 69 years old and would have become the 2nd oldest President had she won.
- Trump and Clinton were both from New York and for the first time since 1944, the two candidates in the race were New Yorkers. FDR ran against Governor Dewey in 1944.
- Trump is the first person elected president in more than 60 years without experience as a governor or in Congress. (General Dwight Eisenhower was the last in 1952.)
- Only two Democrats have directly succeeded another Democrat as US president. The most recent was James Buchanan, who was president from 1857 to 1861. Unfortunately for Democrats this will not change.
- The Republicans had the most votes for President in the Primary Season ever with 31 million votes – the old record was 21 million.
- President elect Trump received more primary votes than any Republican in US history with over 14 million. The old record was 12 million.
- This was the first Republican primary season since 1968 where more than 3 candidates won a state (Trump, Cruz, Rubio and Kasich).
- The results of the general election are the first time that Republicans have control of the Presidency, Senate and House since 2005.
- In addition to Michigan the Republicans hadn’t won Wisconsin since 1984.
It was also historic to see a family member put the candidate over the top in the delegate count for President at his party’s convention.
