We Need to Understand What Happened on Election Night, and Fast
The first thing that occurred to me when predictions of a Trump Presidency were apparent was, "How am I going to explain this to my 9-year old?" My son went to bed last night asking me who was going to win. I told him I wasn't sure but that it would probably be Hillary Clinton and that I would tell him when he woke up the next morning. He had voted in a mock election earlier that day at his school where two sides argued left-wing policies like free, universal healthcare and humane immigration policies against right-wing ones.
