The Republican Crackup and the Future of Presidential Politics


Dr. Samuel L. Popkin, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Political Science/Recall Professor, presents a noontime lecture to Oceanids Sounding Board at the Ida and Cecil Green Faculty Club. The Republican party controls the White House, Senate and House of Representatives but has been unable to fulfill only one of the party’s longstanding promises to their voters. This lecture will explain how changes in campaign finance have weakened the ability of the political parties to manage intra-party conflicts. These conflicts made possible the election of President Donald Trump, whose policies have further divided the party. Ample time will be provided to answer questions.
