Having Trouble Accepting that America Could Elect Trump? There's a Good Reason

According to the exit polls conducted by Edison Research, Clinton won four key battleground states (NC, PA, WI, and FL) in the 2016 Presidential Election that she went on to lose in the computerized vote counts.  With these states Clinton wins the Electoral College with a count of 306 versus 232 for Trump. Clinton also won the national exit poll by 3.2% and holds a narrow lead in the national vote count still in progress.
Exit polls were conducted in 28 states. In 23 states the discrepancies between the exit polls and the vote count favored Trump. In 13 of these states the discrepancies favoring Trump exceeded the margin of error of the state.

 Other little things make me unable to accept the results, such as Clinton winning every precinct in Wisconsin that had paper ballots and losing precincts with electronic machines. Statistics don't work that way.

Here's the research.
