The 2016 presidential election is already being described as the race where "data died."  But did it die - or was it just hidden because no one was looking in the right places? 

It's early, but a preliminary analysis indicates that Donald Trump's team of data scientists, based in San Antonio, Texas, "picked up disturbances—like falling pressure before a hurricane—that others weren’t seeing. It was the beginning of the storm that would deliver Trump to the White House." 

In the end, it appears Trump tapped into an angry class of voters that no candidate has spoken to for decades.  Courtesy Bloomberg News.
