This article is treating Reince Priebus harshly when the facts are, Trump received a plurality and failed to win the popular vote; Priebus added several governors and state houses, all won with majorities, and preserved the federal Congress. RobS#NeverHillary 07:07, 17 November 2016 (EST)
- Priebus was invited to the podium at the Trump victory party, ostensibly for Priebus getting out the vote in a ground game. But the facts show that turnout was down in Priebus's backyard of Wisconsin, and Trump won there because voters did not turn out for Hillary. What did Priebus really do, other than promote himself and the Establishment?--Andy Schlafly (talk) 09:36, 17 November 2016 (EST)
- CNS News: "Republicans added to their historic 2014 gains in the nation’s state legislatures with the addition of five state House chambers and two state Senate chambers in last week’s election, while Democratic control was reduced to levels not seen since the Civil War...publicans are now in control of a record 67 (68 percent) of the 98 partisan state legislative chambers in the nation..."
- All this, including 2014 cycle, has been under Priebus' stewardship. Likewise as Chief of Staff, Priebus' & Ryan most assuredly will pass almost entirely the Trump & GOP program by May or June. It looks like a solid working relationship. Bannon handles the media & PR aspects, Priebus' & Ryan the legislative.
- Bluedogs most likely will be on board for most of the economic program; Progressive will be hypocritical to oppose infrastructure projects. The legislature looks very favorable for passing virtually all of Trump's program. All of this success is Ryan's and Priebus' work. RobS#NeverHillary 14:18, 17 November 2016 (EST)
