No! Trump did not pull off a shocker to analysts who did not have a horse in the race. Anyone who had an open, unbiased mind and spent the prerequisite amount of time on the road in observation and discussion with voters around the world knew there was little chance of a Clinton victory
Debbie and I, as small government unaligned intelligence seekers, did not take to the road last spring with any preordained conclusions. We develop an international investment strategy on behalf of clients of Richard C. Young & Co. Ltd. That is the long and short of our effort. We travel gathering anecdotal evidence both in America and in Europe. We do not model with computers or mix with electronic media or print media analysts and pundits. We observe, we question, and we develop an ongoing profile of real time feelings and developments on the ground.
Daily mavens of richardcyoung.com know that Debbie and I have been consistent with our set of conclusions since the start of our intelligence gathering last spring. Hillary Clinton was a deeply flawed candidate and a probable felon and a traitor. She was widely perceived as a liar, responsible for the Libyan debacle and, along with her disgraced husband Bill, was bought lock stock and barrel by her criminally allowed and foreign influenced foundation. All of this was in the public domain for any analyst who wished to observe and question. There was only a small chance Hillary Clinton was going to become president of the United States despite the hideous performance by the U.S. electronic and print media and the entrenched Washington elites of both parties.
The rotten to the core legacy of the Clintons will now burn in flames with the charred remnants but a sordid stain in the annals of American history.
