Abstract

The 2016 election cycle has been marked by a populist rebellion against Washington by the supporters of Donald Trump, and the billionaire class by those who follow Senator Bernie Sanders. Vicente Navarro writes on the election with a European view, and investigates why women’s and African American organizations are supporting Hillary Clinton rather than Sanders, given that they would benefit more from Sanders’ policy program. He explains that such organizations tend to focus on race, gender, or age, rather than class. He argues that politicians on the left and social movements need to learn from Europe and begin to emphasize class-based policies.
