Publisher's Summary

From the moment Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the White House until very late on election night, 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 senior editor at Breitbart News following Trump on the campaign trail - Trump's 2016 win was a near certainty. Schweikart and Pollak watched the Trump campaign build a powerful coalition of working Americans from both parties; they saw the momentum that the mainstream media and pollsters completely missed. Now, in How Trump Won, they tell the whole incredible story, from the early poll predictions to the campaign trail and on to election night.

Intriguing Summary

Epic behind the scenes details of the most controversial and unpredictable election in my lifetime. It helps explain why this was the most exciting presidential bid, probably in history.

Boring material. Terrible Narrator

What disappointed you about How Trump Won?

Honestly I only made it through about an hour of this drivel. The author droned on about his credentials while presenting the same Trump story we already know. I could have made it through that however the Narrator's fake "accent" completely ruined it. I attempted listening to it a couple times and couldn't bear it.

Has How Trump Won turned you off from other books in this genre?

It's the same material. We know that story.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jack Griffin?

Ray Porter. Doug Wead. Or anyone else. The narrator ruined it.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

OK but disjointed and repetitive.

A little disjointed and the the countless journalist reports from Trump campaign rallies feel repetitive.

Still, a decent listen overall, and some great insights into Trump's rise to the Presidency, though I preferred Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes' Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign, and Doug Wead's Game of Thorns.

If you've enjoyed to those two, you'll enjoy How Trump Won too.
