Both Bernie and Donald tapped into the populist disappointment with the way the establishment has been running the country and both had very good turnout of the people who wanted a change, any change , to come about just as Barack Obama tapped into that wish for change when he won the election.
However Obama who talked a good campaign did not actually make the changes people were looking for and while some liked his changes others disliked where he was going and what the results of that actually were.
The establishment leadership on both sides who have grown farther apart over the years failed to see what the people were looking for and ignored the consequences of doing that and kept pushing their own agendas which did not sync with the voting public and what they were looking for.
It of course remains to be seen if any real changes do take place under an outsider president not tied tightly to either party though elected as a republican. We do not really know what he will do or how effective he will be in any aspect of the executive department he will be heading for the next four years and speculation about it is fruitless until things actually begin to happen under his administration.
Is this a revolution or not ? Who knows until it takes place however things go. Certainly the present admin did not effect a real revolution though the potential was there to do it just not the will to do it in a way that the public approved of or the results of this election would have been to continue a form of the present admins programs not a call for change to a different direction.
