The national polls had Hillary ahead, and she did win the popular vote.

State polls for the most part were within the margin of error. It was just many of the swing states were seriously that close according to polls when we hit election day.

And on top of the above, Trump had momentum going into election day, thanks in part to the FBI announcing it was looking into Hillary's emails again just a few days prior. That was enough to change course.

The notion that Trump somehow defied polls just isn't true. It does though make for a convenient excuse when polling doesnt go the way his followers want.
