Flyover Folk Episode 10: Moving Past Resentment Politics in Rural America with Dr. Katherine Cramer
Aug 01, 2017
Few political scientists understand the role of rural resentment in the election of Donald Trump better than Dr. Katherine Cramer. For over a decade, Dr. Cramer studied the impact of rural consciousness in the democratic process and recently published her findings in a book titled "The Politics of Resentment: Rural Consciousness in Wisconsin and the Rise of Scott Walker." We talk about how politicians leverage resentment in rural communities for their own political gain and how organizers can include rural voices in the conversation.
