I've loved politics pretty much my entire adult life, both Canadian and U.S. I've always been an enthusiastic and avid follower and I've been known to watch every rally, speech and debate. I've also been known to stay up half the night waiting for the last vote to be counted.

How is anyone to believe that either candidate will deal with the deeply-rooted problems of America today: income disparities, the legal corruption of political donations, a warming globe that needs to be cooled, crony capitalism that has harmed so much of the American middle class? Add to this the ultimate problem: an uncanny tendency to deal with all these fires by repeatedly pouring oil on them.

For Trump to win "significantly" more of the white vote would mean getting into the mid-60 per cent range, or two out of three white voters -- two out of three! As absurd as that sounds, Trump's chance of simply not doing as poorly as did Romney amongst African Americans and non-Cuban Hispanics looks even more absurd.

When it comes to understanding the seemingly unprecedented Donald trump phenomenon, sometimes history provides some interesting parallels that can serve as a modern warning sign. In this case, I'm thinking of Austria in the 1930s, a nation that shared much culturally, politically and linguistically with its neighbor Germany but had only one-tenth its population. Sound familiar?

2012-11-05-HP_World_Graphic_300x70.png At the end of the day, this "close" election was not really that close.
