Donald Trump defied the pundits and polls to defeat Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s presidential election.
Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics, appeared on "Fox & Friends" this morning to explain how pollsters' predictions - which overwhelmingly favored Clinton - were so wrong.
"We were wrong. The entire punditry industry, the entire polling industry, the entire analyst industry – and I want to use this opportunity to take my fair share of the blame – we were wrong," Sabato said. "We, the whole industry, have a lot to learn from this."
He added that hundreds public and private polls had Clinton up in nearly every battleground state, but they did not account for a tremendous turnout of rural and a lower turnout of millennials and African-Americans.
"How do you capture people who maybe won’t talk to pollsters or will fib to pollsters?" Sabato said. "It’s an industry-wide failure, and we’ve got to get it fixed.”
"This is a spectacular event that we will be studying for the rest of our lives."
