So why do you say he is not the favorite? Who decides who is the favorite for a race or a game or a match? It's an opinion so if he's your favorite then great! Doesn't matter what the few at the top say who the favorite is! Trump wasn't the favorite by those at the top but he obviously was the favorite and won!!!
That's a flawed analogy at best, given that more people voted against T than for him, and in fact more people demonstrated against his win than for it.
I think we should stick to running to analyze running....
