Trump Wins: First Impressions.

These are my first impressions from in the dark winter pre-dawn refreshing of my phone's news. My wife and I held hands and we refreshed the Google Electoral map.

I think Trump won't be quite as bad as very progressive liberal Democrats think. He's a New York Times reader after all and not a career politician. And at least it was a clear victory. But it is likely to be bad for Democrats and if it's bad for the country and economy, that could be really good four years from now for Democrats.
Two morning articles encapsulate my thinking as of now
NYT front page story on Trumps win. Seems to explain it well:

And this CNN showing that women just didn't vote strongly for Hillary, which is good in a way because it means when a clear majority of women do in the future decide to vote for a woman, it will be powerful: What Clinton's loss says about women in politics
