A gripping, in-depth account of the 2016 presidential election that explains Donald Trumps historic victory

Donald Trumps election victory stunned the world. How did he pull it off? Was it his appeal to alienated voters in the battleground states? Was it Hillary Clinton and the scandals associated with her long career in politics? Were key factors already in place before the nominees were even chosen?Identity Crisis provides a gripping account of the campaign that appeared to break all the political rulesbut in fact didnt.

Identity Crisis takes readers from the bruising primaries to an election night whose outcome defied the predictions of the pollsters and pundits. The book shows how fundamental characteristics of the nation and its politicsthe state of the economy, the Obama presidency, and the demographics of the political partiescombined with the candidates personalities and rhetoric to produce one of the most unexpected presidencies in history. Early on, the fundamental characteristics predicted an extremely close election. And even though Trumps many controversies helped Clinton maintain a comfortable lead for most of the campaign, the prediction of a close election became reality when Americans cast their votes.

Identity Crisis reveals how Trumps victory was foreshadowed by changes in the Democratic and Republican coalitions that were driven by peoples racial and ethnic identities. The campaign then reinforced and exacerbated those cleavages as it focused on issues related to race, immigration, and religion. The result was an epic battle not just for the White House but about what America is and should be.
