WNU Editor: Donald Trump is the big winner by far. Everything that could be thrown at him was .... but he still persevered. This election is for the history books, and it will be studied for years.

Talk Radio and the Drudge Report: They became the alternative to the main stream media ... and I doubt that after this election their influence will be underestimated again.

U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions: Sen. Sessions was the first and only senator who actually endorsed Trump prior to his securing the Republican nomination. He is now positioned to be the go-to-guy between the U.S. Senate and the White House.

A Republican Senate and Congress: All the pundits (and Republican ones at that) were predicting major loses for the Republicans in the US Senate and Congress. It did not happen. And now .... for the first time in years .... the Republicans control the executive and legislative branches of government.

Those who oppose an activist Supreme Court: Donald Trump has already given a list of people that he would appoint to the Supreme Court. This is probably going to be President-elect Trump's first acts.

Opponents to the Iran Deal: Will a President Trump reject this deal .... we shall see.

Opponents to Trade Deals: Expect fireworks between a Donald Trump White House and Congress on this one.

Opponents of "Open Borders": Again .... expect fireworks between the White House and Congress on this one.

Opponents of :Big Government": Again .... we shall see if this happens. But President-elect Donald Trump has a mandate .... it is now up to him to deliver it.

republicans in general were big winners. they'll likely expand their lead in the senate and house in 2018 (repubs usually do better in non-presidential election years). they have a huge majority of the governorships and in state legislatures. and if that isn't enough, they'll also have at least one...and possibly 4 (if they get very lucky) supreme court appointments over the next few years because 3 of the justices either are 80 or will turn 80 during the upcoming presidential term.

it will take a long time for the democratic party to recover from this loss. this hasn't been discussed much in the media yet, but I'm sure it will be over the next few days and weeks

And possibly Scott Adams.

(And other maverick online pseudo-pundits that were right when most were wrong.)
