Abstract

On Tuesday night, Michigan held its primary vote for the 2016 presidential election. While on the Republican side, Donald Trump was widely expected to win the most delegates – and he did – for the Democrats, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders confounded all expectations and polling to beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Jenny Tatsak writes that the focus on the Michigan primary has been heightened because of recent media attention on the ongoing water crisis in Flint and on Detroit’s slow recovery after decades of decline. She argues that with their Michigan wins, both Trump and Sanders have shown that in this year’s election, many voters have a large appetite for an alternative to the political establishment
