CoastLine: The 2016 Elections

Nov 11, 2016

Wednesday, November 9:

If you stayed up until about 2:30 last Tuesday morning, or learned of the results of the elections later, you know that nationally at least, a number of people were very surprised by both the victory of Donald Trump and to a lesser extent, the composition of the US Senate.

Here in North Carolina, the results may not have been as surprising, but they did reinforce the strength of the overall Republican gains. On this edition of Coastline, we'll talk about the reasons for those gains, and why they did surprise many people.

This episode's guests are:

  • Richard Poole, Chair of the New Hanover County Democratic Party
  • Michael Franklin, Chair of the New Hanover County Republican Party
