When 2011 began, the worst recession in two generations was technically over, but Annica Trotter, Ray Meyer, and Jennifer and Brian Barfield were unemployed and searching for work.

With the election finally here, voters and leaders must contemplate what the lasting effect of Donald Trump's movement will be if he falls short.
The polls have him down. The FBI cleared Hillary Clinton in her email scandal. And the early vote offers her promising signs.
A polarized America went to the polls Tuesday to pick its 45th president, choosing to elect either Hillary Clinton as the first woman to be president or billionaire businessman Donald Trump, the final act of a long and rancorous campaign that upended U.S. politics. The winner will inherit an anxious nation, angry and distrustful of leaders in Washington. She or he will preside over an economy that is improving but still leaves many behind, and a military less extended abroad than eight years ago yet grappling with new terror threats.
Throughout the election, our forecast models have consistently come to two conclusions. First, that Hillary Clinton was more likely than not to become the next president.

Our tipping-point index identifies the states most likely to provide the decisive vote in the Electoral College. Here’s the deal: Our forecast models simulate the election thousands of times every day. In each simulation, we line up the states sequentially by the margin separating Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Start adding up the winning candidate’s electoral votes beginning with the state they won most comfortably and working your way toward the more competitive states, and the tipping-point state is the one that provided the 270th electoral vote. The top tipping-point state — according to polls-only model run from Tuesday evening — was Florida.

For Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, it's time to begin the closing arguments.
