From the moment Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the White House until very late on Election Night 2016, media and pollsters kept insisting Trump wouldn't--couldn't--be president.
But for Larry Schweikart - one of a ragtag group of amateur politicos called "The Deplorables" who had been publishing shockingly accurate polls and predictions - and Joel Pollak - a Breitbart News senior editor following Trump on the campaign trail-Trump's win was a near certainty. Schweikart and Pollak watched the Trump campaign build a powerful coalition between working Americans from both parties; they saw the momentum that the mainstream media and pollsters completely missed; and now, in How Trump Won, they tell the whole incredible story: from the early poll predictions of "The Deplorables" to the campaign trail to Election Night.
