Trump Won – Now What?

Image source: Wikimedia

The 2016 general election has been a big win for the Republican Party. Not only did Donald Trump beat out Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, but the Republicans managed to hold on to both houses, as well. Even though there was a lot of concern in the Republican Party that they might lose control of the Senate and possibly even the House of Representatives, they have managed to maintain that control, with a very strong majority in the latter chamber.

This is the first time in quite a few years that we’ve seen Republicans gain control over two of the branches of government. With the need for Trump to nominate a Supreme Court replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, this could actually give the Republicans control over all three branches of government. That’s even more than Obama had in his first two years of office.

Trump’s win can be largely attributed to the conservative vote. Throughout his campaign, he shifted more and more conservative on the substantive issues. This brought out many conservatives to vote who wouldn’t have bothered leaving their homes for someone like Jeb Bush or Chris Christie.

But the question that faces the country now is: What does that mean?
