The Largest Campaign Ever
2016 was a big year for George Soros. For the first time in years, George Soros made million dollar campaign contributions. The majority of these contributions were donated to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. After his disappointments with the Obama administration, which Soros regards as less liberal than hoped for, he had high hopes for the Democrat nominee. Unfortunately for Soros, those hopes were quickly slashed by an unexpected victory by the Republican nominee Donald J. Trump.
The Shocking Turn Of Events
Most polls placed Hillary Clinton in the lead by a large margin on both the national and state level on theatlantic.com. However, election night results delivered a shocking twist with Trump doing exceptionally well in swing states such as Florida and Pennsylvania. Additionally, he saw success in other unexpected areas such as Wisconsin. The campaign success of Donald Trump was primarily an electoral college victory. Hillary Clinton still managed to win the popular vote by a margin of approximately 2.9 million votes on Biography, but these votes were not concentrated in the states she needed to win.
Recovering From The Loss
Although these failures were unexpected, Soros still has a plan for the left. He is currently meeting with fellow progressive donors in order to plot his next move from this point on. With the help of Democrat leaders such as Nancy Pelosi and donors such as the Democracy Alliance at https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/people/george-soros, an organization consisting largely of progressive donors, Soros hopes to stage a comeback. Before that comeback can begin Soros intends to stall the agenda of Donald Trump. Trump has promised he will address the issues of immigration and jobs in his first 100 days, but Democrats intend to prevent this from happening.
A Moment To Rethink
He has generated a fortune of more than $25 billion over the course of his life by making the right predictions and acting on those predictions. As a strong believer in progressive values, Soros has taken the same strategies that helped him in finance into the world of politics. Liberalism is currently experiencing a crisis while the right is finally returning to power. If he can find a way for the left to recover, we might find ourselves talking about how conservatives dropped the ball in the future.
