Abstract

Since the election of Barack Obama and continuing with the rise of Donald trump in 2016, American politics has become more and more racialized. While levels of racial resentment have remained largely unchanged since the 1980s, Adam Enders and Jamil Scott find new evidence that it has become increasingly correlated with political issues such as vote choice, partisanship and ideology. They argue that the racialized nature of our current political discourse has been changing the way the public thinks about politics – a change that may be difficult to undo.
