The great scholars who were using HISTORY and DATA to look at the US elections and the trend in Ghana, it looks like History didn't repeat itself. We have broken the Historical-New-Normal. However, the US elections have no impact on Ghana’s- What happens Historically, are mere flukes. It used to be like; Anytime Republicans win: the NPP wins, and anytime Democrats win: NDC wins. Now, Democrats have won, and NPP won also. This is a clear indication that the US elections have no bearing on Ghana's election.
However, the mistake made by the NDC in this election is that they took certain things lightly. The NDC stated that they don't believe in empirical surveys and polls conducted by institutions, and that many social media surveys favor them. Now, the social media polls didn't work magic for them? It's unfortunate, the strategies the parties adopted in the campaign were disastrous- politics of abuse, insults, retaliation, etc. Anyway, it was keenly contested and Ghana has decided. Believe in research and polls, especially in election seasons. Don't underestimate them.
But, Mahama's biggest downfall, so long as this election is concerned is SAMMY GYAMFI, Peter Otukonor, and BRIDGET OTOO. The reason is that Aggressive Politics; Wrong Politics; and ’Mis-campaign-ation’ don't help in an election. It only insights animosity.
