June 27, 2016 The Indian Express

Ashutosh Varshney, professor of political science and public affairs, writes an op-ed about the major forces that have pushed Donald Trump into becoming the presumptive presidential Republican nominee. Varshney says economic anxiety and ethnic prejudice is what's fueling Trump's rise in popularity. If Trump succeeds in securing the United States' highest office, "American politics will regress to a past the nation has left behind," Varshney concluded.
