"Up the Establishment!" That was the message voters sent when they elected Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States. It was a message of anger and frustration — and defiance.

Trump's success defied all the conventional political rules. Sixty percent of the voters had an unfavorable opinion of Trump, according to the exit polls — higher than Hillary Clinton's 54 percent unfavorable. And yet Trump won. Sixty-three percent said Trump is not honest and trustworthy — higher than Clinton's 61 percent. And yet Trump won.

Only 38 percent said Trump is qualified to serve as president, while 52 percent said Clinton is qualified. And yet Trump won. Americans elected a candidate they don't believe is qualified!
