In a stunning upset, Donald Trump won the presidency early Wednesday morning, as 10 electoral votes from Wisconsin put him over the required 270.

How? Trump absolutely devastated Clinton in the rural vote, which has a significant number of working class whites that had been flocking to him throughout the election cycle. And Clinton, in many cases, was not able to make up the difference in more urban areas, home to minorities and college-educated whites, whose support for Clinton was more tepid.
