On November 8, 2016, America watched Donald Trump win an election that exposed the gaping divide between rural and urban America. His unexpected success raised a critical but understudied question: Why is rural America so full of resentment for cities, city dwellers, and the urban elite? By sitting in on conversations with working class citizens across the Wisconsin countryside, Professor Kathy Cramer discovered an overarching complaint; rural voters felt they were not getting their fair share of attention, resources, and respect. Join us for a discussion with Professor Cramer as we examine the politics of rural resentment.
