Summary
  • "Was Donald Trump's election a fluke, or did it represent a fundamental shift in the electorate that will have repercussions--for Republicans and Democrats--for years to come? The political experts wrongly called the 2016 election and they keep blowing it--constantly predicting the coming demise of President Trump without pausing to consider the durability of the winds that swept him into office. In The Great Revolt, Salena Zito and Brad Todd challenge readers to view the winning 2016 coalition through the lens of not only partisan realignment but also of broader cultural change--and beyond the prism of a single candidacy. The Great Revolt delves deep into the minds and hearts of the voters that make up the new populist-conservative coalition that brought Trump and Republican majorities into office. As the authors travel over 27,000 miles of back roads to interview more than three hundred Trump voters in ten Great Lake swing counties, they identify seven clusters of voters integral to the winning coalition. The mass media ascribes Trump's election to angry, ugly impulses, but Zito and Todd reveal a coalition that defies those stereotypes. When encountered in the places and routines of their daily lives, these voters explain the deliberate, sometimes conflicted choices they made to support Trump that transcend one election. Spanning a wide range of careers, economic classes, and prior electoral habits, these voters include ex-labor union leaders, newly pragmatic evangelicals, lifetime political cynics, and college-educated professionals who resisted the pull of a Clinton campaign message crafted just for them. Reacting to a culture increasingly driven by distant elites, these voters seek a movement larger than themselves, a cause that puts pragmatism above ideology, puts localism before globalism, and demands respect from Washington. Pairing Zito's signature reporting skills and Todd's big-picture political and cultural analysis, The Great Revolt marries on-the-ground investigation with the hard data analysis of electoral trends. The book reveals that the pivotal voters who unexpectedly turned the 2016 election had been hiding in plain sight--ignored by both parties, the media, and the political experts all at once. Deeply rooted themselves in the work-based, faith-driven traditional culture of the nation's interior states, Zito and Todd reframe the discussion of the "Trump voter" to answer the question, What's next?"--Dust jacket
  • "The history of the American electorate is not a litany of flukes; instead it is a pattern of tectonic plate-grinding, punctuated by a landscape-altering earthquake every generation or so. Donald Trump's electoral coalition is smashing both American political parties and its previously impenetrable political news media.The political experts called the 2016 election wrong and in the wake of the 2016 election surprise, the experts have continued to blow it - looking to predict the coming demise of the President without pausing to consider the durability of the trends and winds that swept him into office. The Great Revolt delves deep into the minds and hearts of the voters the make up this coalition. What emerges is a group of citizens who cannot be described by terms like "angry," "male," "rural," or the often-used "racist." They span job descriptions, income brackets, education levels, and party allegiances. What unites them is their desire to be part of a movement larger than themselves that puts pragmatism before ideology, localism before globalism, and demands the respect it deserve from Washington. Zito and Todd have traveled on over 27,000 miles of country roads to interview more than 300 Trump voters in 10 swing counties. What they have discovered is that these voters were hiding in plain sight--ignored by both parties, the media, and the political experts all at once, ready to unite into the movement that spawned the greatest upset in recent electoral history. Deeply rooted in the culture of these Midwestern swing states, Zito and Brad Todd reframe the discussion of the "Trump voter" to answer the question: What next?"--
Summary
A syndicated columnist and an experienced Republican strategist delve into what makes Trump supporters tick through interviews with over 300 of them in 10 swing counties and discover that they have diverse jobs, income brackets, education levels and party allegiances
