    I was way off also, I thought Clinton would win, the Dems would own the Senate. I am glad I don't pick for a living.

    This was the first time I've ever had to admit to being wrong.

    It felt weird.

    You had lots of company. I was all in for Trump but I thought the years of ground game prep and 'get out the vote' machinery would push Clinton over the top. It does look like she will win the popular vote.

    I was going with Johnson the last couple of weeks. Then I noticed a disconnect between what the media was telling us and I was seeing on the street. Considered a Brexit effect. If it was going to be closer than the media thought, I wanted to ditch Hillary and protect the second amendment.

    I was also thrown for a loop. I was pretty sure Hillary Clinton would win but Trump pulled it off with the most electoral votes. In the popular vote it's still a virtual tie.

    Maybe it's time to stop relying on our media masters telling us what to think.
