Abstract

It was nearly certain according to polling institutions and the media that Hillary Clinton would become the 45th President of the United States. However, election night would provide a different outcome. This paper/presentation will explore the mass media's (newspaper, broadcast and social media) role in the outcome of the 2016 General Election and how/why the polls and media got it wrong. Additionally, I will explore the role the mass media plays in regards to agenda setting in the outcome of the 2016 General Election.
