"Britain’s stunning vote to leave the European Union suggests that we’ve been seriously underestimating Donald Trump’s ability to win the presidential election."

Says James Hohmann (in WaPo), who clearly wants Hillary to win:
In the short term, the impending fallout from Brexit will make the presumptive Democratic nominee look good. She advocated for Britain remaining in the union; Trump advocated for leaving. The markets are going to tank today, and this vote will set off a tsunami of repercussions that could meaningfully damage the global economy. People’s 401(k)’s might take a shellacking, and interest rates may spike. Any long-term benefits from breaking away will not be apparent until after the general election....

But the results across the pond spotlight five forces that could allow him to score an upset: 1. RESENTMENT OF ELITES.... 2. XENOPHOBIA... 3. ISOLATIONISM... 4. FLAWED POLLING/The polls showed a neck-and-neck race, and surveys in the past few days showed movement in the direction of “Remain” after Cox’s murder. In the end, though, “Leave” prevailed by 4 points.... 5. COMPLACENCY/The Remain campaign was burdened by complacency. Millennials, who overwhelmingly wanted to remain in the E.U., did not turn out at the same rate as older voters, who wanted to leave...

Labour was solidly Remain. The rank and file abandoned their leaders.

This sell off is stupid. Things will be better Monday. US is a safe haven.

bwebster said...

Note that of all the European stock markets, the one that performed the best today (suffering only about a 2.5% drop) was --- the UK stock market.

Sammy Finkelman said...

No, it doesn't. Because, actually, the polls were showing an outcome very similar to this - aBrexit victory by a small margin. Only the bettting pools were the other way. Nigel farage thought they would lose. People thought Brexit was maybe slightly ahead, but then killing of the member of Parliament probably brought things around the other way.

Here te polls show Donald trump losing, and how you would project this if you didn't have polls also shows it, and there are polls on side issues (like negative opinion) that also show it.

The Brexit case was really a case of believing the prediction markets rather than the polls.

Sebastian said...

"Xenophobia" Even the lame correction to the underestimation is condescending. If Progs keep going like that, they may end up underestimating their underestimation.

Sammy Finkelman said...

All that is necessary for a sell-off is for a small minoroty of stock owners (stock managers really) to feel that something just changed and they should sell. Only a tiny perrcentage of the stock outstanding trades in a single day. The stock price has to drop until new buyers are encouraged to come in.

Nonapod said...

People who are anti amnesty or at the very least skeptical of the notion of the currently very open border situation we currently have in the US tend to be saddled with the epithet "xenophobe". I feel that's not only unfair but greatly oversimplifying the situation and acts as a way to shut down all discussion.

While I don't doubt that there are certainly some true xenophobes in the US who logically would also be in favor of any and all additional restrictions on immigration, I disagree with the notion that all, or even most, of the people who support tightening up our borders are true xenophobes. Look at it this way, would you let just anybody into your house? And if not, do you consider yourself a xenophobe because of that? Do you consider yourself inhospitable? Or could there perhaps be other reasons beyond just a general fear of strangers that may motivate you to be cautious? Is that possible?

Michael said...

He lists five points but leaves out the one he noted first: a potential slam to people's portfolios. And further headwinds in this very weak "recovery" works mightily against Clinton.

Agree. Our Canadian neighbors have a very interesting approach to immigration. If you are in the country illegally they put you on a place home. They welcome immigrants who can make a financial contribution to Canada.

Weird huh?

robother said...

Trump supporters should emulate Scott Adams, and tell pollsters they intend to vote for Hillary, both in the interest of self-preservation (why would anyone tell some anonymous caller his or her political preferences and not assume it could be shared?) and to encourage complacency on the part of the Hillary machine (including MSM). Under the radar worked for Reagan in 1980.

Hmm, who is hurt most by the "market tanking" right now?
Well, Hoodlum, obviously people who own a lot of equities.
What sort of person owns a lot of equities, now?
Well, Hoodlum, obviously the very wealthy own a lot of equities.
Does that mean that the "market tanking" hurts very wealthy people, say the "1%" most, now?
Why yes, Hoodlum, yes it does.

Stock market declines stick it to those fat cat 1%ers, so we should be celebrating those declines, right? Since "banksters" have so much ill-gotten money and the decline harms them, right?

Brexit decreases inequality by reducing the wealth of the 1%! Is there anything it can't do?!

Henry said...

The point being -- it's a lot easier for people to overthrow an establishment when they're given a vote on it.

tim maguire said...

Anyone who thinks it's acceptable to vote for Hillary Clinton is sufficiently divorced from reality to underestimate Donald Trump's chances of winning.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

Why?

Because it was the result of a video?
Because she was up at 3 a.m to receive a call with the vote totals?
Because this incident shows just how badly we need an incompetent, corrupt, ethically challenged sleaze bag For President?

Anyone who thinks Trump has a shot is seriously underestimating Hillary’s ability to steal the presidential election.

The sell off today is occurring because the stock market was overbought by all those investors who thought that Brexit would fail. Long term investors don't have to sell and after allowing a few days for things to settle down, they can take advantage of lower prices and buy more shares of stock.

"Forced to choose between their heads and their hearts, the Brits went with their hearts."

It must be too much to ask the WaPo to believe that people voted in their own best interest and had a rational reason for their choice.

khesanh0802 said...

The markets are overreacting to Brexit which is typical. Traders (and I mean that term pejoratively) hate uncertainty. Grab some cash and wait 'til Monday when you can figure out what to buy. Coupe is right about the opportunities that will be available. The stock markets have been way overpriced because of the Fed's ridiculous monetary policy, and a silly push by traders over the last week or so. Brexit has had no significant effect on American industry in the short term. If the pound stays depressed that might change a bit, but I am betting the pound rises markedly on Monday.

No. FOMC could even retract the recent rise. London will lower rates, the continent is in negative territory. Money will therefor flow where? Yes. And that means lower rates here.

I am by no means a wealthy man but when I call up my doctor to make an appointment I can generally get one the next day, two at most. The other day I was able to get in that day when I called in first thing in the morning. My back was killing me, the doctor told me to remember my age and prescribed an anti-inflammatory.

If I had to wait four weeks to see my physician I would find another one.

Clayton Hennesey said...

I'm surprised at how many 30-something Americans (progressives) are furious at the UK for voting Leave. They're talking on social media and elsewhere as if Britain, which most of them have never visited and never will, making a catastrophic mistake on their behalf. They're completely rattled by the markets, although few of them have 401(k)s or the disposable income to invest.

The only way I can make sense of this is that Brexit has become a signifier to them for some type of global, obviously (to them) xenophobic, generic Trumpism, like a zombie plague. What's next, dear God? Mortality?

TreeJoe said...

I love how serious intellectuals now consider it totally acceptable to slap "Fear of Others" as a serious reason for disliking open immigration/poorly controlled immigration.

Like there isn't very solid room to look at the results of poorly controlled immigration and say "This isn't good for the country."

Unknown said...

Younger Brits voted to Remain. The older Brits, who voted to Exit, outnumber the young. Not the same dynamic here, our older generation doesn't yet outnumber the younger generation in overwhelming numbers.

Michael K said...

"The wait to see a doctor in the UK is now four weeks. Four weeks."

Thousands of NHS doctors, mostly the young one, are leaving for Canada and Australia.

Ive been posting on this over at Chicago Boyz.

‘More and more British GPs talk about the pressure they’re under,’ says Guy Hazel. ‘I’m not sure the general public understand how mentally draining it is to see 35 to 40 patients a day. All the British GPs I know are exhausted.’
An Australian GP, by contrast, will see 20-25 patients per day.


We are seeing the same thing here but they are trapped by student loans that will take decades to pay off.

glenn said...

Not too hard to figure out the bad polling data. Why would someone who planed to vote leave tell some pollster he/she didn't know. I just hope the establishment guys don't figure it out.

Anglelyne said...

Forced to choose between their heads and their hearts, the Brits went with their hearts.

How would he know? It's apparent from the article that Mr. WaPo guy has zero insight into what's in either their heads or their hearts.

Globos are sure it's their opponents who are "living the past". Who are the real nostalgia-mongers here? This piece reads as if someone were competing to be the media-lackey who can cram the most stale globo propoganda into one short article. (To be fair, these days they all tend to sound like that.)

Couple of examples: Scapegoating immigrants worked. Polls show that fear of refugees and immigrants from the E.U.’s open borders was a top issue driving votes to leave.

There's that misuse of "scapegoat" again. Refugees and uncontrolled immigration are causing enormous, potentially catastrophic, problems, and chuckleheads like this guy are still trying to pretend that people's reactions are based on entirely irrational fears? Sometimes it's hard to believe that these people actually believe the nonsense they write.

Trump likes to describe his foreign policy as “America First,” even though it has been pointed out to him that this is the same catchphrase Charles Lindbergh used in the late 1930s when he was trying to stop the U.S. from assisting Britain in its war for national survival against the Nazis.

Oh, "it was pointed out to him that..."? Gee, Mr. WaPo Guy, maybe other people might not share your cartoonish, 100% presentist take on Lindbergh and the America First movement, and therefore don't have a mindless Pavlovian response to the phrase?

And on and on it goes. Not that there's anything new in this attitude of "all disagreement with My Holy Writ arises from ignorance and bigotry", but the peculiar parochialism of these people is really starting to sound like it is nurtured in a madhouse. Or a "special needs" journalism program.

mockturtle said...

Xenophobia - the tired and repeated leftwing accusation. zzzz.

Sigh! I know! I've been a true xenophile all of my life but the left would still call me a xenophobe because I believe in borders and LEGAL immigration. I love the way Trump just thumbs his nose at these aspersions and we should, too!

mockturtle said...

Piss on the Left! They've had their turn. Now it's ours.

Unknown said...

No, Trump could not win here based on the same dynamic as stated above. We are a much larger country and much more diverse. But hey, keep hope alive. The WaPo guy is spooked, but if he gave it some more thought he wouldn't have written this stupid article. Brexit and it's fallout will only help defeat Trump. It's already started, look at the stock market. The canary in the coal mine, the UK, is gasping for air.

mockturtle said...

Unknown said: Good thing the UK instead of us, is the canary in the coal mine. We here in the US can watch the process and learn a lesson.

EUROPE is the canary and we can see very clearly what uncontrolled immigration has done to them. The UK won't be the last to check out.

Ron Winkleheimer said...

the peculiar parochialism

I read an article a while back by a young woman who tried watching the original Star Trek because so many of her friends liked it, however she was forced to condemn it because some of the episodes did not 100% comply with current SJW dogma.

She reported that seeing such fare not only upset her, it made her physically ill.

So you can pretty much bet that Yale is going to eliminate the requirement that English majors study English poets. White males are so yesterday.

Unknown said...

Disagree with a leftie on ANYTHING and you are a racist. Blow it out your ears, I could care less what you think anymore.

mockturtle said...

The way the leftist media are reporting Brexit reminds me of Tom Brokaw in 1994 when Republicans won the House in a mid-term election. The incredulous look on his face as he reported the returns said it all. He couldn't believe that voters could be that stupid . :-D I loved it!

eric said...

For those talking about the polling.

To see what those of us who are skeptical of polling are saying, you need to look at February polls. Because we are 5 months from the US election and that where we are with the Feb polls.

The best poll for Brexit in February was at the beginning or the month, 36-45, which had Brexit winning by 9 points.

Most of the polls that had Brexit winning in February had it winning by a much slimmer margin and never did Brexit exceed 50%.

On the other hand, remain had

54-36 (Remain by 18 points!)
48-33 (Remain by 15 points)
52-39 (Remain by 13 points)

And these have remain near 50% or over 50%.

How can anyone rely on such polling, is the point? In other words, did the polls back in February give us any useful information? Or was it just noise?

People here like to mock those who mess with unskewing the polls.

Answer me this, how can any poll, five months out from an election, ever be demonstrated to be laughably, arguably, wrong?

This should actually strengthen the EU, because being a member of the EU is so beneficial, that the UK is going to fall apart now. The rest of Europe and the US will see that, and all the right wing/populist movements will lose all their members.

Right?

Paddy O said...

"Take a lesson America."

I think our lesson was that, despite the naysayers, breaking away works out alright in the long run.

Joe said...

In many ways, the causes for support of leaving the EU mirrored the reasons for the American revolution. The failure of [mostly] liberals, corporations and elitists to see this is, to me, both revealing and damning. The argument for remaining in the EU centered on concentrating power in the un-elected and crony capitalism.

The recent display of Democrat hubris vis-a-vis the sit-in in the house also betrays them as supporting this same kind of unregulated power. Ironically, the biggest reason for electing Trump is precisely to so the press and others will finally actually chisel away at federal, and especially executive, authority.

Unknown said...

British Pound down by 10%.

David said...

By the time our election rolls around, Brexit may look better, or worse. If it looks better, it might help Trump. If it looks worse, it will not help him.

Brett is not self-executing. The UK has to renegotiate all of its treaties with the European Union. That will take years. And the shape of those renegotiations is impossible to predict. So this is not a momentary uncertainty. It is years of uncertainty.

Nonapod said...

As to what the Brexit vote says about our election in the US? My guess is only that it's foolish to assume anything, especially in 2016: The Year all Assumptions were Proven Wrong(rated PG13). Trump wasn't supposed to make it this far. The Brexit wasn't supposed to happen. Hillary was supposed to be coronated completely unchallenged, and not be stymied for months on end by some weird upstart Socialist fuddy duddy. There wasn't supposed to be so much unrest under the benevolent reign of our Dear Leader Obama. The economy was supposed to be going gangbusters, with 5% GDP growth and a climbing Labor Force Participation Rate. There weren't supposed to be any more major radical Islamic terrorist occurring domestically.

Richard Dolan said...

James Hohmann is amazingly tone deaf, the sort of fellow so busy lecturing everyone else that the only voice he ever hears is his own. His comments about what supposedly motivated the 'leave' voters, and might motivate Trump voters in the US, are resentment, xenophobia, and isolationism. No doubt, that is how he seems any voter who disagrees with his take on things -- small minded, ignorant, a bit paranoid, definitely not Ivy material.

In that, he is quite like Obama and Hillary! If anything gets undecided voters to elect Trump in November, it will be the incessant and very tiresome lecturing by the James Hohmanns of this world.

David said...

I do not understand why this is so "stunning." It was clear that it was going to be a close vote. Also, because the topic was unlike a usual election for public office, polling was probably inherently less reliable.

I've been trying to figure out why any American would care about this. Sure, the markets will react, but then they will adjust. They always do.
I can see that conservatives are happy about it because they enjoy seeing a blow for freedom and individual rights anywhere. But most of the commentary I am seeing is from the American left. What does it matter to them that the UK leaves the EU? Is it because a Democratic operative managed the campaign to stay? (Are they all really so inside the machine that they would even know that?) Or is it because Soros backed the Remain campaign? (Again, are they all so really inside the machine they would know that?) I just can not understand it.

"Even people that truly hate me are saying it’s the best they’ve ever seen,” he said, before inviting his three adult children to give remarks.

At the press conference that followed, Trump was asked if he’d been conferring with his foreign policy advisers. “I’ve been in touch with them, but there’s nothing to talk about,” he responded."

The so-called Brexit has wide implications for the U.S. economy, which is already facing a slew of headwinds.

The chief of the U.S. central bank and top monetary policy setting official, Janet Yellen, forewarned earlier this week that Brexit "would negatively affect financial conditions and the U.S. economy."

Trade between the two nations only makes up 0.5% of U.S. economic activity. However, the connections go well beyond direct trade between the two global powers.

The effect on America can come through a number of chain reactions -- a Brexit domino effect on the global economy. Here are four ways the wake of Brexit could hurt the U.S. economy.

Some useful words for Hillary supporters and the anti-Trumpsters: Unexpected – astonishing – stunning – sudden - unforeseen – unanticipated – staggering – unpredicted – remarkable. All these words are going to become very useful in the coming months leading up to November.

Useful thesaurus for us Trump supporters: Amazing – fortuitous – wonderful – electrifying – payback – retribution – vindication – revenge – fallout – aftermath – hyuuuge – awesome – stupendous – fabulous – historical.

It must be too much to ask the WaPo to believe that people voted in their own best interest and had a rational reason for their choice.

"Best interest": Another clever buzz phrase that works so very well among those that never question.

I once disagreed with an old college friend about some political point. He accused me of voting against my self-interest. I asked him, politely, if he thought saddling my children with unfathomable debt was in my self interest; or limiting their ability to succeed in life through onerous, often illogical, regulation and a few other items.

Friends for 40 years..... 'til then.

The whole world is reeling after a milestone referendum in Britain to leave the European Union. And although leaders of the campaign to exit Europe are crowing over their victory, it seems many Britons may not even know what they had actually voted for…

“Even though I voted to leave, this morning I woke up and I just — the reality did actually hit me,” one woman told the news channel ITV News. “If I’d had the opportunity to vote again, it would be to stay.”

That confusion over what Brexit might mean for the country’s economy appears to have been reflected across the United Kingdom on Thursday. Google reported sharp upticks in searches not only related to the ballot measure but also about basic questions concerning the implications of the vote. At about 1 a.m. Eastern time, about eight hours after the polls closed, Google reported that searches for “what happens if we leave the EU” had more than tripled.


One can appreciate the humorous aspect of this, no?

Michael said...

Tough shit for them, Unknown, because the bankers in Berlin will pick up the business. I know you hate to see 1% bankers getting the shaft, especially when they wanted to stay in the EU for reasons that you could not find with a seeing eye dog, but there you have it.

Stunning that you think this is an insight. Because if you think it through you will note that no matter how London voted, no matter how diverse they are, no matter how well educated and young they are. They lost.

London voted to stay because it has become an imperial city just like Washington D.C. and wanted the gravy train to continue.

From all accounts, the British media drumbeat for "Remain" was incessant and, after Jo Cox's murder,it became hysterical. Britons were told that voting "Leave" was basically siding with the MP's murderer and would drag the country, not only into recession but into war. Despite that , a majority of British voters were able to see through the media bias and dramatics, reject them, and vote on what they considered the merits.

And that's what should be terrifying the Democrats. If people stop believing the media narrative here, they'll stop electing leftists.

Are you saying that conservatism is just for white folks? I'd say not. Populism/Socialism/Nationalism have failed wherever they've been tried (lately, Venezuela, Greece and of course Zimbabwe). While marketeering internationalism -- with a very healthy dose of conservative economics -- keeps succeeding pretty much everywhere it is given a chance. Hong Kong. Singapore. Switzerland. The United States of America!

You might just say, Switzerland is notably not in the EU. Correct. And I am no great fan of the EU. The Brexit vote would have been a difficult one for me if I had been a Brit. I imagine it was a hard vote for a great many Tories. But the real point is that conservatism isn't just for white people anymore. I works everywhere, regardless of race creed or the origin of your national economy.

UK Prty leader admits his bold Brexit claim was a "mistake".

As Britain awoke on Friday to the news that it had voted in favor of withdrawing from the European Union, voters were introduced to their new reality with a stunning admission from Nigel Farage, the pro-Brexit advocate who leads the U.K. Independence Party. Farage said that the Vote Leave campaign's signature pledge—that leaving the European Union would allow for £350 million to be spent on the U.K.'s National Health Service—was a "mistake."

Farage's mea culpa was made during an appearance on Good Morning Britain, where he was asked if he could continue supporting that promise after the campaign to extract the United Kingdom from the European Union had succeeded.

"No I can't, and I would have never made that claim," Farage said. "It was one of the mistakes I think the 'leave' campaign made"

The judge is a member of a group whose foundational principal is racism and only real difference with the KKK is the color of the targets.

Hillary is endorsed by The Race and refuses to renounce that endorsement while Trump has renounced the KKK repeatedly. You are just a stupid douche.

If Trump gets "keelhauled in November" it will be the end of "Trumpism" and the beginning of something very ugly and dangerous.

I have been accused by one of the local leftist lunatics of wanting a revolution. That is not true. I have been predicting one.

If Trump fails, I don't see how it can be avoided, It will not be pleasant for anyone and especially for the financial services people who hate Trump so much because he threatens their sweet livelihood.

When we in Britain last September our friends had a dinner party. I sat next to and spent the evening conversing with a guy was a Lloyd's "Name" who was bankrupted by the asbestos lawsuits.

The author: "People’s 401(k)’s might take a shellacking, and interest rates may spike." This will hold rates down, not cause them to increase, most likely. The 401k is just a paper loss for most in a long term game. But low interest rates are distorting the world economy (and a sign of other distortions) and their continuation is not a good feature. It's both evidence and cause of economic weakness.

Chuck, stop being stupid. The demographic numbers that are bad for Trump are just as bad for Republicans, period.

Are you saying that conservatism is just for white folks? I'd say not.

What has what I think or what you say got to do with anything? Non-whites vote how they vote, and statistically, in the U.S. they vote for Dems and big government. That's just a fact, Chuck, not subject to manipulation by your cucky thought-waves about "natural conservatives".

Populism/Socialism/Nationalism have failed wherever they've been tried (lately, Venezuela, Greece and of course Zimbabwe).

And yet, the example of these chronic failures does not prevent the Americans who like Dems and big guv from voting for Dems and big guv. This group includes most non-whites groups, by large margins.

While marketeering internationalism -- with a very healthy dose of conservative economics -- keeps succeeding pretty much everywhere it is given a chance. Hong Kong. Singapore. Switzerland. The United States of America!

Chuck, that doesn't change the record of how people have voted and are voting. Jesus, you're dense. People vote how they vote. And in the United States, non-whites, with a few demographic exceptions, vote solidly Democratic. And have done so since long before Trump appeared on the scene. Cucks are willfully delusional about why that is. Trump will probably do no worse among non-whites than another Republican candidate would. That's why your crowing about how bad the demographics are for Trump, as if its strictly a Trump problem, makes you look retarded, if not crazy.
