>> I have a feeling this is another Brexit. This is gonna be interesting.>>
APPLAUSE
>> If he's right, major shock is heading across the Atlantic, and it will be riding the coattails of the disenfranchised. As voters face a choice, a leap into the unknown or a lukewarm nod to the establishment.

Something that sounds familiar on British shores. Here in Kent, 60% of people took that decision to leave the EU. I'm Reuters reporter Jacob Greaves in the constituency of Gravesham, the most pro-Brexit part of Kent. It's also one of the most economically deprived areas in the southeast of England, with a large working class population and high regional immigration numbers.

Perhaps, most important of all, it's an area you could argue has been left behind. Chief Brexiteer Nigel Farage is the local European representative for Gravesham. He's also taken up a hobby as a trans-Atlantic Trump surrogate, sharing a stage and anti-elite, anti-expert narratives. But like the Leave Camp, Trump's throw the bums out approach has consequences.

>> That's if Trump wins, but a President Hillary Clinton will face headwinds too.>> The challenge that we all face, in the US and in the UK, is how do we, as individuals, as institutions, as governments, actually find ways to hear what's going on, this huge disenfranchise, this huge left behind, and actually change the system to react to it, to re-enfranchise, to re-engage?
00:01:45
That's an extraordinarily hard problem because that's something we haven't faced, really, for decades now.>> Whoever wins Tuesday will have a Brexit-shaped headache waiting for them.
