Lying your way to the presidency is a fairly impressive measure of success.

Successful con-men don't try to fool "all of the people all of the time."
In Trump's case he fooled less than half the people on election day, but that was enough to game the electoral college. Some of the people, some of the time, is all you need to be successful.
