In DG #25 we looked back on the events that led to one of the biggest political upsets of recent decades: the election, against the predictions of pollsters and media the world over, of Donald Trump as US president on 8th November 2016.

Scroll over our infographics below, which chart a presidential campaign in which he was given poor odds of succeeding throughout and an election in which he received fewer votes than his opponent, but still, thanks to the US electoral college system, clinched victory in the end.
