How Trump Won:

The Inside Story of a Revolution

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; and 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.

Editorial Reviews

“No recent American history challenges the conventional wisdom of academics as aggressively.”

FrontPage Magazine on Schweikart’s A Patriot’s History of the United States

“An antidote to the mass hysteria of trigger warnings and safe spaces.”

Milo Yiannopoulos, Breitbart News editor, on Pollack’ See No Evil

“A welcome, refreshing, and solid contribution to relearning what we have forgotten and remembering why this nation is good, and worth defending.”

National Review on Schweikart’s A Patriot’s History of the United States

“A call for truth in an age of lies—and a reminder that liberals will do anything to avoid a fair fight.”

Ann Coulter, New York Times bestselling author, on Pollak’s See No Evil
