As it stands now, Trump has 266 votes and can get up to 40 more. He is winning, by a landslide, he basically just needs to get one more state to win.
What I want to hear now are opinions about this. Or if you are American, even better, you could share some insights for outsiders like me: What is the appeal to vote for Trump? I just don't understand it, and I would like to hear others if they anticipated Trump to win.
Of course, I shall start with my own opinion, in order to start the discussion:
As some of you know, I'm not from the USA. I look as an outsider at this mess of an election, and for the last few months I was firm in my believe that nobody with a sound mind would vote Trump instead of Clinton.
'Why' is easily explained. Trump isn't as intelligent as Clinton, he tells lies whenever he opens his mouth, he insulted at least half the population of the USA, and obviously, he has no experience with politics. If someone thinks that leading an enterprise or a company is basically the same thing - no, it's not.
I'll be honest here. I'm looking as an European at this mess at the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. I thought that Bernie Sanders - yes, that 'socialist jew' as some would call him - would have been the best option for the USA. He would have actually helped the poor people and would have taken the money from the rich people, and he could have changed the USA for the better in the long run. But he lost to Clinton, so that was out of the question. I don't like Hillary, but she was the lesser of two evils, in my opinion.
Anyways, opinions, go! Also, if, by some miracle, Clinton wins, we can talk about this too, and speak about how close Trump actually was.

; other networks have different numbers, but overall it's the same everywhere, Trump is winning.
