“Backlash: The Astonishing Election of 2016”
Hillary Clinton was an overwhelming favorite to win the presidency last November, yet she was beaten by a candidate with seemingly insurmountable weaknesses. How and why did this happen? What will be the impact of a disruptive president who ignores traditional norms and opposes many modern policies? With a conservative president, Republican control of both houses of Congress, a more conservative Supreme Court, and 33 Republican governors, what is the future of the Democratic Party and progressive values?
