How Trump Won: The Inside Story of a Revolution by Joel B. Pollak, Larry Schweikart, Jack Griffin

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.
