A considerable number of women and minorities have taken this as a sort of referendum on sexism and bigotry, which I understand, but it leaves out a good number of decent people who were just voting for the candidate who said what they wanted to hear economically, and the one they felt was more believable. Not every Trump voter is a racist/misogynist/bigot. People vote what they think will help their checkbooks. I believe President Trump will be more socially liberal than candidate Trump.

There are a thousand reasons he won, but disinterest in enriching himself isn't one of them. I supported HRC, but I sincerely believe that Trump could be the best Republican president since T. Roosevelt.

That is, of course, a pretty low bar, but he surprised just about everyone at some point during his campaign; who's to say he won't during his presidency?

...Or in 20 years we could all be living in either Trumpland or Putinistan.
