Louisiana News & politics focus on Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Louisiana legislature

clapper insightOn November 8, Donald Trump won the presidency with a substantial victory over Hillary Clinton. He captured 30 states and 306 electoral votes, the most for a Republican presidential candidate since 1988. In the process, he garnered 62.8 million votes, more than any other Republican presidential candidate in history. Of course, Clinton received almost 3 million more votes than Trump, but the candidate who receives more than 270 electoral votes wins the presidency and that is what Democrats will not accept.

In a number of polls in battleground states and national surveys, Donald Trump has amazingly made the election competitive.  Only one week ago, a Washington Post-ABC news poll found Hillary Clinton up by low double digits.  Now, the margin has swung around rapidly to where Trump leads in the same poll.

wilson trump part1The last time Chris Wilson and I discussed elections during a Bayoubuzz video interview, was shortly after the Democratic convention.  At that time, the walls were caving in on the Republican Party and on Donald Trump.  Now, six days before the elections, Trump is suddenly on a major upswing, some Democratic-strong states' walls are collapsing and the news simply gets worst every day for Hillary Clinton as Wikileaks, the FBI Director James Comey email case reopened and Obamacare put a major laceration on the nation's healthcare.  Trump could hit the 270 electoral college votes.  What a turnaround!!
