Gareth van Onselen’s article (Features, January 19-25) obviously has a factual base but what about the other side of the story?

Traditional polls proved disastrously wrong in both the UK and US recently, and Donald Trump’s victory had much to do with his dominance of the social media platform. Why not do an article on the social media platform in SA and the good things the DA is doing in Nelson Mandela Bay, Tshwane and Johannesburg?

I am an optimist and believe this good news will spread, and more and more black people will find the courage to vote for the DA. And 2019 may be a bridge too far for the ANC, a sentiment which is being echoed by many in its ranks.

Or do we just give up and tell our children to emigrate?
