The Analysts

Election Day Recap: Washington Results and How Trump Trumped the Projections

Examining the Washington State elections and national election results.

November 9, 2016

The results are in. Despite the many projections that suggested a victory for Hillary Clinton, GOP candidate Donald Trump has been elected as the 45th president of the United States of America.  

Running on three hours of sleep between both of them, Joni Balter and C.R. Douglas take a look at what happened at the polls for our national election. They also dive into the state and regional results such as governor, lieutenant governor and secretary of state, as well as analyzing what the initiative outcomes really mean for Washingtonians. Grab a cup of whatever you need and sit back, The Analysts will break it down for you.
