The highly awaited 2016 presidential election has finally come to a head. The entire nation is abuzz with either anger or satisfaction.

Donald Trump is officially the President-elect. Republicans won both the Senate and House.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump ran an extremely close race throughout the campaign. Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton, and Ted Cruz simply dropped from the race. With these occurrences, America knew immediately who would be representing the major political parties.

In spite of this many hoped for drastic changes in this election that seemed to frighten almost all of America. Most hoped that either Hillary or Trump would be found guilty of the crimes they were currently being investigated for.

Hillary, for instance, had a huge scandal with the Federal Bureau of Investigation about emails she sent and deleted over a private email server that were thought to hold confidential information. Donald, on the other hand was, and even now as the President-elect, is awaiting a hearing for multiple allegations of rape. Regardless, America still saw them as the best possible people to represent the major parties that drive this country. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton did one thing that has never been seen, particularly not by the Millennial generation. That is the massive divide of the parties.

Online polls done throughout 2016 showed that nearly half of each of the parties not only found the other party to be unsavory, but also that the other party scared them.

The fact that two people can stir enough controversy in a country as to have half of its citizens literally afraid of the other half… That is the truly new aspect of this election.
