    Dana H. Allin: Trump's loud silent majority

    18 March 2016.  ‘The silent majority STANDS WITH TRUMP.’ For someone who can remember the 1968 United States presidential election, these placards, waved by Donald Trump supporters at his Tampa, Florida campaign rally on Monday, are striking. Trump, too, is more than old enough to remember 1968, and the historical echo is clearly intended. The silent majority was Richard Nixon’s phrase, and he used it with great effect to channel the resentment of middle...

    CNN: Foreign policy under America’s next president

    07 March 2016.  Interview with Francois Heisbourg, Chair of the IISS “Whoever is going to be elected in November is going to be tested fairly quickly by circumstances which he or she would not necessarily have chosen. [He/she] will be tested by Vladimir Putin, will be tested by the Israelis, will be tested by the Iranians, will be tested by the Chinese because they will need to know whether what happened in 2013 – when...

    Dana H. Allin: Donald Trump and the American Dream

    04 March 2016.  Last night, on the Republican candidates’ debate stage in Detroit, Michigan, frontrunner Donald Trump assured his supporters and other viewers that there is ‘no problem’ with the size of his penis. And lest we imagine that this unique moment in American political history was the special contribution of our most famous Bronx real-estate-magnate-cum-vulgarian, we should note that the subject was first raised not by Trump but by Senator Marco Rubio...

    Mark Fitzpatrick: Iranian election results spark cautious hope

    01 March 2016.  Elections were held on Friday that fanned hopes for the reform of two stigmatised regimes. The one of perhaps the most global interest concerned scandal-plagued FIFA. To the surprise of many observers, Gianni Infantino was selected as president to replace the suspended Sepp Blatter. Infantino promised change, but many FIFA fans are to see deeds that back up his words. More significant elections took place in Iran for that country’s 290-member...

    Dana H. Allin: Sanders and Trump

    24 February 2016.  Donald Trump won the Nevada caucus last night by a 20-point margin. Polls show that he is likely to triumph in the 12 states and one territory holding their contests together on ‘Super Tuesday’ next week. If that happens, he won’t be unstoppable in the Republican nomination campaign, but it is not easy to see how he will be stopped. Something big and dark is happening in American politics. Parallels have...

    Dana H. Allin: Out of New Hampshire, and out of control?

    10 February 2016.  In late 2010, the writer Peter Beinart compared the expanding Tea Party conquest of the Republican Party to what had happened to Democrats after Vice President Hubert Humphrey lost narrowly to Richard Nixon in 1968. ‘[B]etween 1968 and 1972, grassroots activists—many of them incubated in the anti-war movement—took over the Democratic Party, state by state. In 1970, activists rewrote Michigan’s party platform so that it advocated reparations to North Vietnam...
