After Donald Trump scored his improbable election victory, our AJC colleague Ariella Phillips asked Georgia voters a simple question: How are you feeling today?

Her are some of the responses she got:

Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in Georgia by more than 200,000 votes.

Donthecon is gonna screw his voters over. He is not a true conservative. He is a straight up white supremacist. That is, unless you too are a bigot. If so you are golden.

How in the hell is Donald Trump godly and Obama is the devil? I have to know what you are basing that off of.... See I've read the bible and in there Jesus said you can't get divorced and remarry, you can't be an adulterer, you can't lie, cheat and steal in business, you have to welcome the stranger amongst you, love your neighbor like you love yourself. How the hell does Donald Trump represent anything even remotely "godly?"

No surprise here. I said he'd win from the start. The Obozo agenda was pure, evil poison. The controlled, lying media could not convince people that things were different from what they saw in reality. Trump won across the board, even with the massive Democrat voter fraud. Just as in the historic landslide midterms, people rejected the Obozo agenda. The riots show Democrats to be classless, lawless, immature, gutter scum and will destroy what little creditability still remained in the eyes of the majority that stripped them of all power.

Isn't it funny how the man that every black leader in this country has supported, even white Christian leaders, Muslim people, Hispanic people, all these people from all these different races support this man. And endorse this man. If a man named Louis Farrakhan endorses somebody , and the man is white, you would have to be a real idiot to call that man a racist. Especially if that man has received a Lifetime Achievement Award of helping the black community. But this is America. You are free to be as stupid as you want to be. But we are also free to recognize it.

Dear Donald Trump: You are my pick for President. Just "PLEASE", keep the promises you made to America! This country has given up so much, to gain so little from a time we all once called the "GOOD OLD DAYS"! We need to put GOD first in the hearts and minds of America once again. If you really want to make AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! Give us a government we can believe in again!

Bill, I couldn't agree with you more. Liberal and conservative must join together to resist this evil. It is no longer about politics.

Khalid Avito We were all trying to vote for the lesser of two evils. After investigating numerous reports and articles, books, and not to mention movies regarding Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, it became obvious to me Donald Trump was the best candidate. For every corruptions posted about Trump, Hillary Clinton seem to have a 5 to 1 margin of accusations and illegal activity. The Clinton Foundation sealed my vote for Trump! Whether or not Donald Trump is or will be Godly in any sense of the word,,,one can only wait and see! Praying helps!
