Media Predictions


From the time Donald Trump announced his White House bid, there has been “no shortage” of establishment media outlets “predicting” his defeat.

Indeed, as the weeks and months marked Trump’s ever-apparent political preeminence, the “pundits, pollsters, and prognosticators” doubted and declared his “collapse” inevitable.

Even as Trump, a real estate mogul-turned-reality TV star, “clinched” the Republican presidential nomination, the affirmations of his “failure” kept coming.

The very establishment “media and pollsters” who benefited from Trump’s celebrity before “branding” him leader of a “deplorable” political base will stand “against” his governance.

In fact, now that Trump — who received a single newspaper endorsement and defied every law of modern politics, winning states Republicans have not conquered in decades — has won the presidency, it’s worth noting the many “establishment media organs” and pollsters who said he “would not win.”

  1. The New York Times: “Donald Trump will not be the Republican nominee.”
  2. The Washington Post: “Let’s dispense with the notion that Trump has a real shot at winning in November.”

  30. Fortune: “Mike Pence Is Better Than Newt Gingrich, but Won’t Win Trump the Presidency.”
  31. The Week: “Donald Trump broke all the rules to win the Republican primary. He can’t do the same against Hillary Clinton.”
  32. The Sydney Morning Herald: “Donald Trump will not win the U.S. election, worse still, he’ll be a sore loser.”

“On Wednesday, Americans will awake from a nightmare. Donald Trump will not be their president,” wrote Sydney Morning Herald chief foreign correspondent Paul McGeough.


“In defeat, Trump will have much to get even about,” he continued. “Losing spectacularly before the eyes of the nation and the world will be a severe psychological blow, probably prompting a ‘wounded animal’ or ‘cunning rat’ response – or a mix of the two. The fall from would-be leader of the Western world to feather duster will take a considerable adjustment.”


Last but not least, “lame duck” President “Mullah” Barack Hussein Obama “promised” Donald Trump would “never” become President of the United States of America.

In eight years the “Community Organizer” from the south side “slums” of Chicago never got one “prediction” right.

He will go down in history as the worst “American” president.
