Bernie, with his anti-trade message would have likely won all three of those states and the election.

Hopefully we get a better candidate (maybe Michelle Obama) in 4 years, and Trump has only filled one seat on the Court, and not two by then. Even with just that he's going to do a lot of damage, maybe irreparable (social security likely will be gutted, as will the ACA and EPA) considering he has a Republican Congress. Our only hope is that he is so petty that he ignites a civil war between himself and the Republicans in Congress, which considering Trump, is quite possible.
Even then, Republicans won't give up the stranglehold they now have on politics. Redistricting, voter suppression laws, SCOTUS, Congress, governors, state legislatures. They have all the power. Can literally rewrite the Constitution if they wish. But why bother as they can do whatever they want without recourse.
