Trump and Us : What He Says and Why People Listen, Paperback / softback Book

Trump and Us : What He Says and Why People Listen Paperback / softback

Part of the Communication, Society and Politics series

Paperback / softback


Why did 62 million Americans vote for Donald Trump?

Trump and Us offers a fresh perspective on this question, taking seriously the depth and breadth of Trump's support.

An expert in political language, Roderick P. Hart turns to Trump's words, voters' remarks, and media commentary for insight.

The book offers the first systematic rhetorical analysis of Trump's 2016 campaign and early presidency, using text analysis and archives of earlier presidential campaigns to uncover deep emotional undercurrents in the country and provide historical comparison.

Trump and Us pays close attention to the emotional dimensions of politics, above and beyond cognition and ideology.

Hart argues it was not partisanship, policy, or economic factors that landed Trump in the Oval Office but rather how Trump made people feel.
