How Putin is Using Populist Movements Against the West

January 6, 2017 Donald Trump is practically alone in mainstream American politics in his consistent praise of Vladimir Putin and insistence that the United States would benefit from warmer relations with Russia. But that inclination to view Putin more as ally than adversary places Trump squarely in line with the racially infused, conservative-populist...

The Mayor of Phoenix Prepares to Take On Trump

December 1, 2016 Forgive Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton if he feels caught in a crossfire. For years, Phoenix has been at the center of the escalating nationwide struggle between progressive cities and conservative Republican state legislatures, usually dominated by voices from suburban and rural areas. Now, Phoenix is on the front line of...

How the Election Revealed the Divide Between City and Country

November 18, 2016 The earthquake that elected Donald Trump has left the United States approaching 2020 with a political landscape reminiscent of 1920.

What Hillary Clinton Could Learn From Her Husband's 1997 Budget Deal

October 20, 2016 LAS VEGAS—Hillary Clinton’s rejection of cuts to Social Security and Medicare ranks high on the list of issues on which she’s moved to Bill Clinton’s left.

Clinton and Trump Are Shuffling the Electoral Map

October 4, 2016 In the campaign’s final weeks, Hillary Clinton’s position now looks stronger in Florida than in Ohio; in Virginia than in Wisconsin; and in Colorado and even North Carolina than in Iowa.

August 5, 2016 The Millennial Generation is poised to exert more influence in the 2016 election than ever before. And yet paradoxically, the generation today stands as one of the knottiest challenges facing Hillary Clinton in her race against Donald Trump, a candidate who, polls show, most of them disdain. Though the Democratic...

When Obama Gains, Clinton Scores

July 14, 2016 President Obama is finishing his second term on a rising tide—and lifting Hillary Clinton in the process, according to the latest Allstate/Atlantic Media Heartland Monitor Poll. In the survey, 51 percent of Americans said they approved of Obama’s job performance, while 43 percent disapproved. That was the first time in...

Culture Is Replacing Class as the Key Political Divide

June 30, 2016 When United Kingdom voters last week narrowly approved a referendum to leave the European Union, they underscored again how an era of unrelenting economic and demographic change is shifting the axis of politics across much of the industrialized world from class to culture. Contrary to much initial speculation, the victory...

Donald Trump's Coalition of Restoration

June 23, 2016 The failure to construct a credible general election fund-raising and field organization eminently justified Donald Trump’s decision this week to fire his combative campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. But it’s likely that Trump himself has already made the decisions that will most shape—and constrict—his general-election prospects. As a first-time candidate with...

'Just Let Charlotte Be Charlotte'

June 17, 2016 It’s an understatement to say that Jennifer Roberts has had a tumultuous time since her election last November as mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina.
