Brexit vote is a prelude to Trump?

The British people have spoken and have voted out of the EU. The questions that the British people were debating are very very similar to the questions that the American electorate will be deciding, that it is, are we fed up with the supercilious sneer of moribund politocracy?

Polls on Wednesday and Thursday indicated that the remain vote would win- why were they wrong? For the same reason that Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi's polls were incorrect, and many French polls were incorrect in predicting too. Voters are very aware of what is a politically correct and answer accordingly. In the privacy of the voting booth, however, they vote as they believe

The political question is whether we are in the midst of a short-term or a long-term political phenomenon. If the basis of society is a self organising system, a self adapting system,  then we need to see whether this is a short-term perturbation in a long-term wave, or whether this is actually the long-term wave.  Vox populi vox Dei.
