Post Election Shock

Many people in the US -- more than half of those that voted -- are in shock that Hillary Clinton has lost, especially since she won the popular vote (she is still ahead as of today).  Here were some of the idioms that came to mind as I reeled from the shock  (felt extremely surprised and upset).

my jaw dropped
I was struck dumb
I was stopped dead in my tracks
you could knock me down with a feather
it's a bombshell
