TRUMP IS TAST
A 2016 Presidential Campaign Series
by Sue Kientz
UPDATE, Nov. 9, 2016:
Below you can read my weekly series on Donald Trump's chances
of winning the U.S. presidency, with its last installment
posted just two days ago.
I stand by my view that all indicators
pointed to Trump on the brink of disaster that would culminate on
Election Day 2016.
The error I made was assuming his disaster would
be losing the election. His allies, his surrogates, and the Republican
Party all look to have severe trouble on their hands as well. Who could
imagine that the disaster wasn't losing, but his winning the election.
We must be prepared to weather the coming storm with this new president.
Read more about how the next few months look very troublesome and concerning,
Mr. Trump's Wild New Year (covers 2017).
Since Hillary Clinton's chart looked strong, both in transit and
progression, one can assume she is facing a situation like Al Gore in 2000.
Indeed she won the popular vote, by nearly 3 million votes. But more
to the point, she likely will have a more powerful and far-reaching
impact by not being president. Gore went on to win the Nobel
Peace Prize for his Climate Change work; Clinton may similarly find
more success (and much less bile and abuse) working more with the
Clinton Foundation and their much lauded efforts in the HIV fight in Africa,
Prediction is difficult business. One expects that if a person
wins the presidency, it would be a good thing for them. That's
not always the case, as we may see soon enough.
