ALMOST Everyone Was Wrong About The Election


I HAD TO DO IT. I DIDN’T WANT TO DO THE SEGMENT. I DEFINITELY DID NOT WANT TO
DO THIS SEGMENT. THIS IS ABOUT THE WARNINGS THAT
I GAVE THE DEMOCRATIC ESTABLISHMENT, THE MEDIA,
ABOUT DONALD TRUMP. MOST IMPORTANTLY AT THE END WE
WILL TALK ABOUT WHY THIS MATTERS GOING FORWARD. BACK IN JULY AFTER THE
DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION WHEN EVERYBODY THOUGHT HILLARY
CLINTON HAS A BIG LEAD AND IS IN GREAT SHAPE, I SOUNDED A
WARNING ON ABC’S THIS WEEK. LET’S WATCH. RIGHT NOW LOOKING AT IT- I HAVE HILLARY CLINTON WINNING
EVERY SWING STATE WITH THE EXCEPTION OF NORTH CAROLINA. I DID THE STATES, I DID NOT LOOK
AT THE NUMBERS AHEAD OF TIME. I GOT TO 269 -269. I
STARTED WITH THE OBAMA/ROMNEY. I HAVE TRUMP AT 279, 259. WAIT A MINUTE. LISTEN, IN HIS LIFE HE HAS HAD
A GREAT TRACK RECORD OF FAILURE, EVERYTHING LIKE THAT. BUT HE IS A POPULIST CANDIDATE
WHEN THE COUNTRY IS ANGRY AND YOU HAVE RUN THE MOST
ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATE WE’VE EVER SEEN AGAINST HIM. IT WAS A
TERRIBLE IDEA BY THE DEMOCRATS TO SUPPORT HILLARY CLINTON. YOU THINK HE’S GOING TO WIN? I AM VERY WORRIED THAT IF THE
DEMOCRATS ARE NOT REALLY WORRIED THAT IN THIS POPULIST
TIME DONALD TRUMP WILL HAVE AN EXCELLENT CHANCE TO WIN, THEY
ARE COMPLETELY WRONG. WELL, IT TURNS OUT THEY WERE
COMPLETELY WRONG. ME BEING RIGHT IS NOT ANYWHERE
AS RELEVANT AS THEM BEING WRONG. WE DIDN’T TELL YOU THERE WAS AN
ICEBERG STRAIGHTAHEAD BECAUSE WE WANTED YOU TO RUN
STRAIGHT INTO IT. WE TOLD YOU ABOUT THE ICEBERG
BECAUSE WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU STEERED AWAY FROM IT. BY THE WAY THE ELECTORAL VOTE AS
IT STANDS NOW IS 279 to 228.HIS NUMBER WILL ACTUALLY BE HIGHER
THAN WHAT I SUGGESTED. EVEN I DIDN’T THINK HE WAS GOING
TO PICK UP WISCONSIN. THAT WAS SURPRISING TO ME. LET’S GIVE CONTEXT HERE. I DIDN’T ALWAYS GET IT
RIGHT AT ALL. THIS THEME WAS THE SAME, THIS IS
A VERY CLOSE ELECTION, WATCH OUT. I DIDN’T LOOK TO DO THE MATH AS I
WAS GOING ALONG, I JUST LOOKED AT THE POLLING, A COMBINATION OF
MY EXPERIENCE ETC., AND I PUT THE STATES IN A
DIFFERENT CATEGORY THAN I TABULATED IT AT THE END TO
SEE WHO WOULD WIN. AS IT TURNS OUT IF I AM RIGHT
ABOUT ALL THAT, HILLARY CLINTON IN A RAZOR THIN VICTORY,
272, 266. IT DOESN’T GET ANY
CLOSER THAN THAT. IT TURNS OUT SHE DID NOT WIN,
BUT IT WAS A CLOSE ELECTION. WHAT I TALKED ABOUT IN THE CLUB
A LOT WAS MY EXPERIENCES. THERE IS A POPULIST MOOD
HERE, WHEN THAT HAPPENS AND THEY ARE PULLING LIKELY VOTERS
YOU ARE NOT GETTING ALL THE VOTERS YOU WOULD NORMALLY GET
BECAUSE THERE IS A GREAT NUMBER OF REASONS FOR THAT. THERE IS AN EXCITEMENT LEVEL ON
ONE SIDE, A LACK OF EXCITEMENT ON THE OTHER SIDE. PEOPLE THAT
DON’T NORMALLY VOTE COMING OUT. BY THE WAY, LET’S BE FURTHER
FAIR TO ME, I HAD ALSO GIVEN THIS GIANT CAVEAT BEFORE
THAT PREDICTION. I’VE GOT TO BE CLEAR ABOUT THIS. OFTENTIMES WHEN I DO A
PREDICTION ON ANY GIVEN ISSUE I DO IT WHEN I SAY I BELIEVE I
KNOW, AND HERE IS MY ROCK SOLID PREDICTION. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THOSE. THIS IS HEY, WE’VE GOT TWO
MONTHS BEFORE THE ELECTION LET ME GIVE YOU MY BEST GUESS. THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY VOLATILE
ELECTION, THE MOST I HAVE EVER SEEN. DO NOT WRITE IT IN STONE. THIS IS A SNAPSHOT OF WHAT I
THINK THE ELECTION LOOKS LIKE TODAY. I THINK I WAS AMONG THE VERY
FEW PEOPLE NOT WRITING IT DOWN IN STONE. VOLATILE, WENT UP AND DOWN. PART OF THE REASON FOR THAT IS A
SENSE OF WHERE THE COUNTRY IS. I HAVE AN ADVANTAGE THAT THE
REST OF THE PUNDITS DON’T HAVE, I HAVE YOU GUYS. IN
ESSENCE I TALK TO YOU GUYS NONSTOP. I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE ONE
YOUTUBE COMMENT AND SAY THAT IS THE DIRECTION THE COUNTRY IS GOING. BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE
ENTIRETY OF THE COMMENTS WE GET, AND I HAVE AN OPEN MIND ñ I AM TALKING TO REAL FOLKS,
THEY ARE PISSED. THOSE PENDANTS IN NEW YORK
ALMOST NEVER SEE THOSE GUYS. THE REALITY IS WHEN YOU LOOK AT
THEM AND YOU SENSE THEIR HOPELESSNESS. THERE IS A FACEBOOK VIDEO I DID
RIGHT BEFORE THE RNC. I SAID I AM WALKING AROUND THE
MIDDLE OF OHIO, THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT VOTING FOR HILLARY
CLINTON. THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME I REALLY
STARTED RINGING THE BELL. I WROTE ABOUT IT AT THE TIME. THE REASON THE PRESS TALKED
ABOUT IT WAS BECAUSE WHAT A CRAZY OUTLIER. AGAIN, I HAVE TO EMPHASIZE ONE
LAST TIME, IT IS NOT THAT I AM RIGHT IT IS THAT THEY ARE IN A
BUBBLE AND THEY CAN’T SEE STRAIGHT. TO THEM THE ESTABLISHMENT IS
AWESOME BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ESTABLISHMENT. WHETHER YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OR THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA, IT IS MY JOB
TO STRAIGHTEN THAT OUT. NEXT TIME WHEN WE ARE TALKING
ABOUT SOMETHING YOU KNOW THAT I AM NOT COMING AT IT
FROM A BIAS. I AM EXPLAINING MY PERSPECTIVE
AND EXPLAINING FACTS THAT BACK IT UP. THE DAY BEFORE THE ELECTION,
THAT IS THE BUBBLE I WAS SCREAMING AGAINST. LISTEN TO WHAT I SAID ONE DAY
BEFORE THE ELECTION? NUMBER ONE, HUFF POST POLLING
LAST I LOOKED THEY WERE AT 98.4% CHANCE FOR HILLARY
CLINTON TO WIN. I FIND THAT PREPOSTEROUS. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. PEOPLE THAT LOOK AT THE POLLS
AND SAY BASED ON OUR CALCULATIONS AND ON OUR READING
TO COME UP WITH DIFFERENT NUMBERS. AND IT WAS RIDICULOUS BECAUSE
THEY LIVE IN THIS BUBBLE. WHEN I TELL YOU DON’T BELIEVE
THE HYPE OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA THERE IS A REASON FOR
THAT. THEY CAN’T SEE STRAIGHT. THEY CAN’T SEE YOUR ANGER
BECAUSE THERE IS NO ANGER AROUND THEM. A LOT OF FOLKS AND THOSE TWO
CITIES, THEY ARE DOING WELL. ONE OF THE RICHEST COUNTIES IN
THE COUNTRY IS RIGHT OUTSIDE OF DC. THEY ARE ALL DOING WONDERFUL. THAT IS WHY THEY CAN’T
UNDERSTAND YOUR PAIN, AND IT SOMETIMES GETS MISDIRECTED AS
IT DID TOWARDS TRUMP. THAT IS WHY WE SAID HEY, IF THE
COUNTRY IS IN A POPULIST MOOD, GO WITH A POPULIST CANDIDATE NOT
WITH THE MOST ESTABLISHMENT AND STATUS QUO CANDIDATE WE
HAVE EVER SEEN. THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND THE
DEMOCRATIC PARTY WAS COMPLETELY WRONG. IT IS SUPER
RELEVANT TO THE FUTURE. LOOK
AT WHAT HAPPENED, DONALD TRUMP IS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND WE HAVE THIS
REALITY SHOW CLOWN BECAUSE THEY WERE OVERCONFIDENT. I SAW A COUPLE OF POLLS THAT
CONFIRMED MY OWN BIAS AND I AM OFF TO THE RACES. IT WAS ACTUALLY THOSE GUYS
THAT HAVE THE BIAS. WE TRIED TO PLAY IT STRAIGHT FOR
YOU HERE BECAUSE WHETHER WE WANT SOMETHING, OR YOU DON’T,
YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH REALITY. I DIDN’T WANT DONALD
TRUMP TO BE PRES., BUT I WAS WORRIED IT MIGHT
HAPPEN BECAUSE I SAW THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL THEY
REFUSED TO LOOK AT. DON’T MAKE THAT MISTAKE
AGAIN, DON’T DO IT. IF WE ARE GOING TO GO POPULIST,
AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE ARE, YOU HAVE TO GIVE THEM A POPULIST
OPTION ON THE LEFT OTHERWISE THEY WILL GO RIGHT AND IT WILL
WIND UP IN DISASTER.

  1. We didn't hand power to Trump you butt hurt candy ass, we elected a man that would hand the power back to the people. If Hillary would have won it would have been the end of this country.

  2. Gunk is so full of BS. Watch the election night coverage, he was freaking out. Before the voting started Steve Oh was talking about Trump getting creamed and they were all laughing.

  3. Smug. You are gonna crush the DNC. It's war with the DNC but you won't cover the #DNCFraudLawsuit because you are #TYT the #YouTubeCNN

  4. I think the people at TYT are a bunch of liberal and narcissistic self-righteous morons. However, I have to give credit where credit is due. Cenk was one of the few liberal journalists who correctly predicted Trump winning the election.

  5. "To them, the establishment is awesome because they ARE the establishment" is the smartest thing Cenk has ever said.

  6. Cenk didn't mind coming to bat for Hillary on election night. "Donald Trump lost New York–his home state–how can he possibly win?" etc. Only afterwards does he reveal his doubts throughout the campaign.

    Responsible journalism at its finest….

  7. Cenk.. you also "called" the election for Hillary prematurely. So you predicted both outcome so you could go back and say oh I was right so either way it went people can say you were wrong so I mean you have no balls that's all you have no balls to stick up for what you believe and that's that

  8. This is what this guy really said in September " those guys will never win another national election. They are gone." He goes on to say that in 2020 Hillary, if she does run again will be taken down by the left not the right. Bernie Sanders could never have beaten Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race. He would have won California New Jersey New York Vermont DC Connecticut and Washington State. Go back and watch the election night coverage by The Young Turks and you will see for yourself how clueless they are about the citizens of the United States of America.

  9. A rare moment of honest reflection from Cenk… but he did spend a great deal of time blowing his own horn too… as usual

  10. I love TYT but. You can't take credit for making a correct prediction when you predicted both possible outcomes lol. Can I bet for Conor and Floyd to win and only counts for the one I got right?

  11. No that's exactly what worked. Fox News has been telling people what to think and feel regardless of what the truth is for decades and now half the country has been tricked into voting against their own interests.

  12. Cenk, it wasn't that you were wrong that made you bad.  It was that you were such a condescending biased a-hole, d-bag pumping for Hillary.   And…that you chose to actually rely on Huff Post for accurate poll data.  LOL.  Really?  Is there a more left wing propaganda site than Huff Post? Trump supporters saw it months before the election.

  13. So if you say Hillary will win. AND YOU DID ( I just watched it ) and you say Trump will win. I think you would be right, and wrong at the same time. Talk about " Hedging your bets "

  14. yea u would also wrong, you were excited for Hillary to win but she lost and the video of your meldown it was priceless.

  15. WTF….CENK WAS HOOTIN & HOLLERING DAY OF ELEC. "TRUMP COULDNT WIN HIS HOME STATE, HE DOESNT STAND A CHANCE"?HOW DO PPL SUPPORT TYT WATCHING THIS OBVI BS? WHAT MORE PROOF LIBTARDS R BRAIN DEAD ZOMBIES.

  16. What a gas bag. If someone does not agree with him the world is coming to and end. They cannot see straight? I am here to straighten you out? This bigot is utterly clueless. It is not anger, it was time to get the dead weight out of the White House and congress. Trump is a clown? Really? So…..what does that make you? Trump wins the election and the " old turkeys " think Hillary would win?! Honestly this is not personal. Nobody cares what you think. You are clueless. From Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Obama the same chicken littles have been predicting the sky is falling. It's still there Zippy. Get a life.

  17. I did NOT know that Cenk made this prediction. I sure hope to hell that he got a call from MSM (some outlet) to be a talking head for them – commentator – anything. He was the ONLY person to nail this. I wouldn't have believed it and I was a supporter.

  18. So he comes out as if he knew Clinton would lose and he had this intelligent foreknowledge. Anyone can go and watch his reactions election night. What a loser.

  19. Hillary Clinton was one of the most heinous criminals in American history. She was a pathological liar, a traitor, a murderer, a thief, a child sex predator, a sociopath, and disgustingly repulsive. Her health was even in question. She never accomplished one thing in her whole life. The only reason she got the nomination was that she stole it from Sanders and yet the fool supported her.

    By contrast Trump knocked off 16 Republican contenders one by one. The first one he knocked off was the presumptive nominee, Jeb Bush. Republican establishment big donors put up a billion dollars to stop him and couldn't. Wherever he went people came by the thousands and tens of thousands to see him. They waited on lines for hours just to get in. He went everywhere crisscrossing the country day after day, month after month sometimes making two or three appearances a day. In sharp contrast to his seemingly boundless energy Clinton made far fewer appearances and often couldn't get a crowd of more than one or two hundred. How could Trump have possibly lost? After he trounced Bush so badly and quickly there was no doubt in my mind that he would win both the nomination and the election. Bottom line, Trump is a winner and Clinton is a loser…. and so are her supporters.

  20. but it is interesting how cenk started the election show nite w a lot of gusto and smiles: he looked pretty sure she was gonna win. and the brimming anger when she started losing conveyed letdown, not "i knew it."
    all in all, this is a pretty cocky lil video, regardless.

  21. These ppl were told that the election was rigged (in hitlary's favor) as much as 25 millions fraudulent votes. This is why they were so smug and sure that Trump would lose. These ppl are pure scum.

  22. The self-promoting lies in this video by Cenk are too many to count. Trump did not run from Viet Nam and it was, in fact, a landslide victory not even close.

  23. the "hold your tongue jerks" have got to be not only some of the stupidest gimbywits ever to be on television but, also who have ever walked the earth

  24. OLD turkey cenk you are nothing bUt a fat pompous JACKASS. YOU WANTED HILLARY TO WIN. YOU HAVE NO FORSIGHT NO VISION NO COMMON SENSE .

  25. the election was decided when Hillary got the nomination. a republican billionaire relates to the common worker better than hillary

  26. In case TYT thinks M. Moore was right and now we are all remorseful and sad; realizing we made a mistake voting in Trump:
    Speaking for myself, I am MUCH more pleased with the idea of the Trump presidency than when I voted for him a year ago. Also there is the huge side benefit – NO HILLARY CLINTON.

  27. I Think You We're Meaning To Say RE DIRECTED TO TRUMP…..MIS DIRECTED TO TRUMP COULD IMPLY AN ERROR IN DIRECTION,NO ERROR IN THIS RACE…….HILLARY HAS BEEN HATED FOR DECADES IN POLITICS,TRUMP NOT SO LONG.

  28. It cracks me up that these people wanted Hillary, denounced women her husband raped and harassed and then when he was sued she stood by him even when he lied under oath.  She loved Harvey Weinstein.  Look in the mirror and admit the Hillary supporters were hypocrites when it came to talking about Donald as they supported this horrible woman.

  29. TYT is dying, and this small attempt at self serving, after the fact, apologetic's is bullshit. The best thing you can do is dump that shrill bitch Anna K., the spitting effeminate dude, and try to get back some credibility by going back to the news and stop carrying water for the regressive left.

  30. democrats are going to get BLOWN OUT in November 2018 ,..but NOT for the reasons pundits on Tv think ,… it will be ONLY because of the anger at the suspected Voter Fraud in virginia and Alabama !! the backlash at the midterms against dems now will be lethal !!

  31. BECAUSE Dems stole alabama or atleast that's what voters Perceive : democrats are going to get BLOWN OUT in November 2018 ,..but NOT for the reasons pundits on Tv think ,… it will be ONLY because of the anger at the suspected Voter Fraud in virginia and Alabama !! the backlash at the midterms against dems now will be lethal !!

  32. Hey I called Trump in June 2015 at 305. I have the record of me saying it. Been right on ever since on everything. Get rid of your show.

  33. I love the fact he was wrong about EVERYTHING and still thinks he was right. He is so dumb he doesn’t even know it.

  34. Only the second commentator I've seen "going for" Trump – should have nominated Bernie, guys… 😉

  35. I just thought all Clinton supporters had the IQ of about 60, or less, Cenk was one of Clinton's biggest supporters and he has the IQ of a hat size.

  36. One and a half years into Trumps presidency, Cenk is still constantly wrong about just about everything.

  37. If you are wrong here, is it possible that you are always wrong and you didnt notice it??? Every night show says that the majority will vote for hillary but haven’t you have the slightest idea that maybe we are looking at this all wrong? It is not that the people are bashing you because you represent the majority but people wanted to lat you know how delusional you all are, its not about races, its about facts!!! trump wouldnt be controlled because he is not a politician, it is not his job to say what you want to hear, I challenge you people to live 1 month without the coverage in those border places that you are proudly talking about not regulating immigration. Why dont you people listen to the reports that the people iin those places couldnt stand the rising of homeless people. You people say Black lives matter and then you dont listen to the people who are living peacefully because they are white? its not about the rights, you people are just wrong

  38. Why dont more people vote. It looks like about 130 million voted. Isnt America like 350 million people? Id like to actually know how many registered voters there were in 2016

  39. The country was angry. That is smart Cenk. I have to give you that. Now, why was the country angry????? Was it because the democrats were not doing a great job? Was it because voters hated Hillary Clinton????? Was it because voters did not want another Obama????? Hillary Clinton beat Bernie. What makes you think Bernie was going to beat Trump?????

  40. This guy is embarrassing, he predicts both sides and has the audacity to have a segment called "I told you". You can't be wrong if you pick both sides.

  41. Here's a bitter pill: if The Young Turds did not exist, Hillary might would have won.

    More people despise TYT than Hillary.

    Here's something to help wash that red pill down 🍺

  42. I watched your Ohio video….I don’t agree with your politics but I appreciate that you we’re trying to warn those establishment idiots. Unfortunately they have learnt nothing both in USA and UK….I voted Brexit and completely support Trump purely because I want to see real change 🤷🏼‍♀️ the left in the UK have lost their fuckn minds 🤦🏼‍♀️ people are sick of being called racist, sexist and bigot!!!
