On November 8, 2016, America's chief storytellersthose within the bubbles of media and politicslost the narrative they had controlled for decades. In a space of 24 hours, the concept of "conventional wisdom" seemed to vanish for good. How did this happen? What follows are over 40 brand new interviews and behind-the-scenes stories from deep inside The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, Fox News, and moreplus first-hand accounts from the campaigns, themselves. We've spent a year hearing the spin. Now it's time for the truth.
Steve Bannon, Trump campaign CEO: When I first came on the campaign, I said, You have a hundred-percent chance of winning. We just got to stick to that plan. Even with Billy Bush, I never wavered for a second.
Jim Margolis, Clinton campaign senior adviser: I am normally a glass-half-empty guy when it comes to expectations on election days. This was the first big election where I was absolutely certain we were going to win.

Don’t like to rub it in when I used to in in sports but alas, I am reveling in this because they just will not shut the heck up!
Best election since George Washington, biggest upset since, forever, most historical because no party wanted him and he still won. God answers prayers.
This was fun to read. But these people still don’t get it.
They are enemies of our Republic.
My takeaway? Bannon's comment about how some Florida counties were "holding votes back" but "The Lead is so large that they're not going to be able to steal the election from us."
Here are insiders, people in the know, who are admitting that the Dems engage in voter fraud. Telling, I thought.
Zara Rahim: There were die-hard Hillary supporters that were like, Were not going. Folks who were sobbing and literally couldnt move because they were so distraught. I remember pieces of memorabilia on the floor, little Hillary pins and I believe that she will win placards.
The “untold story” is that the “great unwashed, know-nothings, denizens of all places eschewed by the media”, got up, went to the voting booth, and told the “high-handed, pointy-headed, self-important elites” to go place their microphones in thier collective alimentary canal!!
Common sense is contagious which is why common sense always winsotherwise we wouldnt be herewe all have a choicecommon sense insurgency is the way for me
What a load of BS. Glaringly missing from this are accounts of Hillary supporters ( the media ) being punted into the next day by her.
This exchange in particular was interesting on several levels...
Steve Bannon: Jared [Kushner] and I were out on this balcony in Trump Tower. We looked at it on Jareds iPhone. And the numbers were so bad that we regrouped inside. We look at each other and we go, This cant be right. It just cant. And Jared goes, I got an idea, lets call Drudge. And Drudge says, The corporate mediatheyve always been wrong the entire timethese numbers are wrong.
Steve Bannon: Drudge snapped us out of it, saying, You guys are a couple of jamokes. Wait until the second exit polls come out, or later. We called the candidate and told him what the numbers were and what Drudge had said. And then we said, Hey, ya know, we left it all on the field. Did everything we can do. Lets just see how it turns out.
I like the fact Jared just calls up Drudge to find out what is really going on. Drudge's use of 1920's slang "jamokes", and contrary to what has been pushed in the media, and on F/R for that matter, you've got Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner hanging out together election eve. And I like the fact Trump remains cool saying we did everything we could and lets sit back and wait. No panic. No despair.
In a Sponge Bob voice....”Loser”
Is that for real, from election day/night? HRC with Bill & Chelsea, celebrating already? WOW
Now, I like to put some words in Bill's mouth: "Interns, interns!!"
The only thing i want to know is the true story of Hillary’s violent drunken meltdown.
BTW, i called the election at 6:54 pm. My friends were amazed. But even that early the trend was obvious.
What he says is putting the odds on the outcome instead of his ability to predict.
This was one of the most delicious articles I’ve read about the election. The liberal delusionsso sad! So downright funny!
Best election evah.
I sweated out the evening having promised I would not watch the returns or the talking heads. I was with friends in a crash pad finishing up a project for a large oil company. Another friend called to tell me the swing was in motion and I succumbed to watch. It was a wonderful night. I went to Walgreens and got some white shoe polish and wrote on the back window of my car, “Take that bitch!” I was elated and did not care what anyone thought after 8 years of miserable subjection.
We had glass cubicle offices with sliding glass doors and I wrote in reverse on the window before others came in, “Put some ice on it.” The kids I worked with said they had not seen me so happy ever. The company has a LOT of green cards and H1B types. In our project several were Canadian one clearly liberal who took offense to my glee. He made the mistake of commenting to me and I made a sharp retort that he did not vote and he did not matter one whit. I added that he should make sure of his work visa status and soon.
I did not expect such a traitorous Senate. I hate them almost as much as I still hate Obama.
