Is Donald Trump an anomaly? Are the two political parties at a crisis point? Where does the country go after a presidential election seemingly like no other?
Those questions and more were the topic of this week’s Behind the Blue podcast. To explore the issues raised by this year’s election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Behind the Blue talked with two leading experts at UK --
Emily Beaulieu, an associate professor in comparative politics, and Stephen Voss, an associate professor specializing in voting behavior and political methodology.
It’s a broad and far-ranging discussion that touches on the history of presidential elections, what’s different about this one, and what the future may look like for the political parties and our system of governance.
