Even though the New York Times gave candidate Hillary Clinton an 85 percent chance of victory, the nation said otherwise and voted for the Republican candidate.

At Franklin Pierce University some students like Matt Scoville, who is FPTV’s station manager, are happy with Trump topping Clinton in the polls. Scoville said, “When Trump was elected I was pretty excited and shocked because I didn’t think it would happen. I’m looking forward to see what he does in office, especially with domestic policies.”

This election is said to be one of the most historic upsets that the United States has ever seen, according CNN during Tuesday evening’s broadcast. 

Clinton’s supposed easy path to the White House left the Democratic party in tears at the Clinton headquarters in New York. They were blindsided by the outcome, to say the least.

There’s nothing Clinton supporters can do now that the decision has been made. All everyone can do is to support Trump and hope that he does a good job in being our new president regardless of the people who think that the election was “rigged.” 

“Everyone has to come to grips with what happened, Trump won fair and square,” said junior Adam Bryson.

  1. Well written Seth Roy. Just a slight adjustment…..Our founding fathers process won Trump the election for Clinton had 200K votes more from the people. We all have to simmer down and see how things unfold. We should always remember that we have voices that can be heard year round…not just during elections. Dina Guay
