Donald Trump's victory in Tuesday's election may have had a familiar feel for fans of Owosso's most famous politico.
With most of the polls predicting a win for Democrat Hillary Clinton, the outcome caught much of the world by surprise.
But if anyone can relate to Clinton's disappointment, it may be onetime presidential candidate and Owosso native Thomas Dewey.
Dewey, who was governor of New York at the time, ran against Harry Truman in the 1948 presidential election.
It was widely predicted Dewey, a Republican, would win the election by a landslide -- so much so that speculation in Washington centered around the make-up of Dewey's cabinet. Owosso residents were preparing for a tourist boom.
Many Democrats had resigned themselves to an impending Republican win.
In a shocking defeat, Truman won the election, but that's not what The Chicago Daily Tribune reported the next day.
The front-page headline: "Dewey Defeats Truman."
Similarly, polls in the 2016 presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton consistently showed Clinton as the victor.
Much of the country was shocked by Republican billionaire Donald Trump's win.
Bridge magazine examined how the results from poll after poll led people astray, and, what ultimately lead to this year's echo of the 1948 headline with an early online headline by the Detroit Free Press proclaiming Clinton won Michigan.
Trump ended up winning Michigan by 13,225 votes with all 83 counties reporting, according to the Michigan Secretary of State website.
While reasons for the 1948 polling errors are still a matter of debate, reasons for the polling miscues this time around included less money from news organizations for quality polls, the unpredictability of people and an increasing number of voters that no longer have landlines and don't answer cell phone calls from unfamiliar numbers.

The full moon of November 14, 2016 is not only the biggest, closest and brightest supermoon of this year. It’s the closest supermoon since January 26, 1948. Should you watch for this full moon on the night of November 14? Sure, and, if you do, it’ll be beautiful. But, for us in the Americas the moon is closer to full on the night of November 13.
The moon turns precisely full on November 14, 2016 at 13:52 UTC. This full moon instant will happen in the morning hours before sunrise November 14 in western North America and on many Pacific islands, east of the International Date Line. (See worldwide map below.)
In Asia and Australia, the moon turns precisely full during the evening hours of November 14. In New Zealand, it actually happens after midnight November 15. Around the longitudes of Europe or Africa, look both nights.
Better yet … everyone, look both nights!
The moon will look plenty full and bright all night long on both nights – November 13 and 14 – as it rises in the east around sunset, climbs highest up around midnight, and then sets in the west at or near sunrise.
The moon won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034.
This coincidence happens three times in 2016. On October 16 and December 14, the moon becomes full on the same day as perigee. On November 14, it becomes full within about two hours of perigee—arguably making it an extra-super moon.

We can watch as we approach two more supermoons like October 16 a day for the Jesuits and new Black Pope Superior General. The worshipers from the Joo-joo-Bees and Khazarian ISIS moon worshipers should offer us some interesting syzygy for the next month. Also note we are prime for our Saturday December Sabado Saturnia sacrifice which should happen in anytown *USA*. Not necessarily Connecticut, but quite possible around the Great Lakes

Trump is 7 and a Wildcard, so anything can happen now. As a Jesuit Sun Worshiper and with the shift from the Khazar Obama, Russia plays very "big League" in this transition to 2017. Lots of things should happen and Mercury is the last Supermmon on Wednesday December 14. Watch your calendar. Time for the big message? We are at high tide for the American Spring.
