Podcast: Trump And The Revolt Against Political Correctness

 

He says outrageous things. He lies. But somehow, he still has a lot of supporters.

In this special episode, we explore what’s going on with Trump and how we can explain voter behavior. Talking with Nelson Wiseman, Professor of Political Science and Director of Canadian Studies at the University of Toronto and Anne Kilpatrick, a Principal on our Research Team, we delve into our current political climate and why someone might support Donald Trump.

Professor Wiseman explains what makes Trump appealing and Anne walks us through the difficulties of asking people why they might do something: getting people to explain their rationales is more complicated than you think.
