'Behind the rise of outsider politicians such as Trump are the interrelated issues of unchecked immigration, terrorism and the imposition of carbon taxes and other measures to mitigate climate change. Elites’ inability or lack of interest in tackling these problems — or even seeing them as problems — generates a crisis of representation in which large numbers of voters look for alternatives they cannot find within traditional political structures. The results have been unexpected. National and state polls don’t tell the whole story. A global anti-elite surge improves the president’s chance of victory. Political professionals are so focused on the micro-details of the 2020 elections that they miss the macro trends favoring  Trump.'

Trump Is Betting That Anger Can Still Be Power " 'Trump's supporters believe that he is the general leading the army into battle against an enemy that needs to be vanquished for the good of the nation. When facing an existential threat, there is no room for public dissent. In hisRepublican Party, you are expected to treat him with reverence, submission and obeisance, or you will be treated as a traitor to king and cause. All of this has come at a crushing price, including driving away young people in huge numbers . The Trump ascendancy has made far too many Republicans increasingly contemptuous of serious intellectual and policy argument, indifferent to empirical truth and His takeover of the Republican Party is complete. Healing and renewal can't begin until the party rejects the malignancy of Trumpism and embraces the belief that politics is not only a necessary activity but a noble calling, an imperfect but essential way to advance justice.'
