Title

Donald Trump's Rise to the Presidency

Abstract

If he’s "#notyourpresident," whose president is he? "Political Campaign Rhetoric," a course I took in the midst of the presidential campaign leading to the election, led me to research why half of the American electorate voted for Donald Trump. My research focused specifically on voters from the working class who supported Trump and on the political climate that led to his election as president. My study was especially enlightening in the context of a liberal campus and the frustration of much of the student body. Understanding why voters elected Trump gave me a greater awareness and understanding of Republican views, a process that I will discuss in my presentation.
