Dr. Anthony DiMaggio researches populism in the era of Trump. His research includes both left and right wing components. The popular narrative in the U.S. media is that rising economic insecurity and anxiety is linked to the embrace of right-wing politics and to Trump voting.

DiMaggio takes apart this myth, explaining what factors are really driving the rise of left and right-wing protest in America. His discussion covers popular protests, including the Tea Party, the Madison protests, Occupy Wall Street, the Fight for $15, Trump and Sanders populism, the anti-Trump protests, and #MeToo. He discusses the just concluded outcome of the 2018 midterm election with an eye toward examining how citizen discontent and populism impacted voting in the House and Senate.
