About this title
The 2016 Presidential election will be remembered for ages not only for producing the biggest upset in the history of American politics but also for the colorfulness of the primaries of both the Democratic and the Republican parties.
When Bernie Sanders, the little-known independent senator from small state Vermont, boldly stated that he was a Democratic Socialist, and then began his race for the White House as a Democratic Party candidate, hardly anyone took him seriously. After all, he was up against the entire Democratic Party establishment and their favored candidate Hillary Clinton. Many people were astounded by the fact that he was taking on the greed and irresponsibility of corporate America and the top wealthy 1 percent. And he was running with very little money, no media support and no political organization to back him up. But he ended up running one of America's most successful campaigns and came close to clinching the Democratic Party nomination after winning the votes of 13 million Democratic Party members in the primaries and caucuses, and after winning twenty-two states. Hillary Clinton became the Democratic Party nominee all right, but she counted enormously on Bernie Sander's support against the Republican Party nominee.
The Republican Party primaries turned out to be equally colorful if not more dramatic. With an array of 17 candidates, it was animated indeed. But the star of the process was Donald John Trump, a businessman and television personality with no political experience. He too ran against the media and the political establishment, promised to "Make America Great Again" and tapped the grievances of the population in a manner never seen before. He belittled those elites of his party who threw shots at him, reduced his rivals in the primaries to irrelevancy, and then clinched the nomination to the consternation of the Republican Party establishment, with many of the party's elites openly pledging not to vote for him.
Donald Trump cannot win! The media, pundits, pollsters and scholars told the American people. Yes, most pundits did not think Donald Trump could win against the Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton, a career politician with a formidable arsenal ― the media, the political establishment, the financial institutions, and the big corporations ― behind her. But he won the election, stunning not only more than half of America, but the clear majority of the people of the of the world who viewed him as a clown with no mettle. Donald Trump's victory was a feat that could not be attributed to his ingenious campaign alone.
In "THEIR LAST STAND: Donald Trump's Upset Victory in the 2016 Presidential Election, How to Win Future Elections, and the Next Phase for America", Janvier T. Chando tells the story not only of how Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election and how Hillary Clinton lost it, but he also provides a unique insight into the changing America that explains the emotions and ideas transforming the country. The author does so by taking the reader on a jolting ride that has hardly been experienced before. Some call it the start of a political revolution, others call it the setting off of an alarm that will resuscitate the political establishment. However, we emerged from reading this book with the feeling that we finally got to understand the epic events that made the 2016 race for the White House a historic election to be remembered for generations to come.

Hardly anyone will disagree with you when you tell them that the United States of America just witnessed a presidential race that would be remembered for a very long time as the most unpredictable, most abnormal and most unconventional in its recent history. The 2016 race for the White House that pitted Donald John Trump as the Republican Party front-runner against Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton of the Democratic Party produced the greatest upset in American politics. It was an electoral race where the media stood solidly behind the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton; it was a contest where the upper echelons of the Democratic Party and most of the top brass of the Republican Party did not hide their resentment of the Republican nominee Donald Trump, thereby confirming him in the eyes of the electorate as an anti-establishment candidate that stirs trepidation in the bosoms of the political elites of the country.
Donald Trump that the Republican Party's elites viewed as an outsider, and who is considered a maverick by the rest of the populace because of his non-affiliation with traditional politics, won all right, and he rode to victory in a resounding manner. This political novice with a knack for being politically incorrect by "saying things as they really are" or for being "brutally honest", won in a race where the machinery of the Obama administration, the repertoire of Hillary Clinton's husband and former president William Jefferson Clinton (Bill Clinton) and his retinue, were at the full disposal of Hilary Clinton to ensure that the election turn out as a smooth walkover or a stroll into the White House that would have made her the first female president in the history of the United States of America. But as it turned out, the Democratic Party nominee failed in a resounding manner that is going to reverberate for a long time.
Yes, Donald Trump defied the odds all right. The president-elect is going to become the next president of the United States of America unless something dramatic happens. He is going to be the number one citizen of the country, much to the consternation of the political elites and the financial heavyweights of the USA and the rest of the world.
The billionaire's win defied the media forecasts or predictions in the sense that poll after poll showed him lagging behind his rival with wide margins before election day. So, it is not surprising that most Americans and the citizens of other countries of the world are trying to figure out the factors that contributed to Donald Trump's win? In fact, most curious Americans would like to know why the different branches of the mainstream media failed so many times in their predictions? Why did pundits fail consistently in analyzing the Trump enigma? How is his win going to change America's political landscape?
This book provides answers to the above questions, answers that lie in the ignored, downplayed and underrated aspects of the makeup of America that Donald Trump successfully tapped, so that they have become major factors that can no longer be kept under wraps. Donald Trump's win not only elicits answers to America's changing political landscape, but it also provides insights into the socio-cultural, political and economic transformation of America as it confronts the reality of a growing multi-polar world. In fact, the issues raised by the victory of this maverick and political novice will henceforth become fundamental factors in deciding future presidential races because no politician would be able to ignore them again and expect to win a Presidential Election.

The Clinton campaign should have heeded the alarm bells set off by the piece 5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win, written before the elections by the famous American documentary filmmaker and author Michael Francis Moore who rose to fame from his 2002 book "Stupid White Men...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!" and from his 2004 documentary film "Fahrenheit 9/11" that talked about the 43rd US. President George W. Bush, and the War on Terror. After all, he is a left-wing liberal. Even the other insightful piece BROKEN ENGAGEMENT: Why a Donald Trump Win in the 2016 Presidential Election Defies the Predictions of the Media and the Political establishment, should have been taken seriously as the final warning cry coming on the heels of a series of earlier pronouncements about the reasons why the Republican Presidential nominee Donald John Trump stood to win the 2016 race for the White House against Hillary Rodham Clinton of the Democratic Party.
Apparently, the anti-Trump campaign was oblivious of the warnings from these two unrelated pieces, which were certainly a few of the many similar predictions out there defying the popular forecasts from the mainstream media and polling agencies showing Hillary Clinton as the candidate ahead in the polls and as the front-runner expected to win the 2016 race for the White House. But the results below show that it was not the case. The Republican Party nominee pulled off a dramatic upset over her Democratic Party rival in what many pundits, newsmen, newswomen, scholars, and pollsters consider to be the biggest electoral surprise in the history of Presidential Elections in the USA.
