Bitterness and joy, outrage and satisfaction, shame and pride, escapes to safe places and displays of celebration - these were just a few of the conflicting reactions that greeted the election of Donald Trump. One point, however, is beyond dispute: Donald Trump defied the odds, whether set by bookmakers, political pundits, or even pollsters. In this book the authors review the race for the presidency and congressional and state elections through the short lens of politics today and the long lens of American political history. At the core of the 2016 election, they seek to understand and explain the different reqasons for Trump's success at each stage of the campaign.
