Donald Trump didn’t just smash Hillary Clinton; he also blew up the Republican Party. He turned anger into power, but now what?


AS EVENING fell on November 6, just two days before what is arguably the most stunning political upset in American history, construction worker Jonathan Langford patiently waited in a line that stretched for more than half a mile. The 32-year-old—and nearly 10,000 other Pennsylvanians—would wait in that line for four hours before they filed into a huge airline hanger in suburban Pittsburgh for a Donald Trump rally. Langford, and the rest of the crowd, would wait for nearly two more hours before Trump finally arrived and would do so without complaint.

“I’ve never been to a rally for someone who is going to be president,” Langford said. “This is a little bit of history here. He’s going to win.”

The polls didn’t agree with him, though they were getting tighter. Most of the pundits didn’t believe it would happen. And even some of the top people in the Trump campaign, just a few days before the election, doubted it would happen. “We may run out of time,” a senior adviser said just days before the election. But polls don’t always capture intensity, and this year, they surely didn’t capture how much anger there is in large swaths of the American electorate.
