Kiron Skinner on Trump and the GOP Nomination

Carnegie Mellon University’s Kiron Skinner thinks that Donald Trump being the most presumptive GOP nominee is the most consequential political event in the U.S. so far in the 21st century. 

"Before our eyes the American electorate is being realigned. We may be witnessing the emergence of a new coalition, perhaps the first major one since FDR’s New Deal coalition,” said Skinner, director of the Dietrich College’s Institute for Politics and Strategy and fellow at the Hoover Institution.

Skinner, an expert on political strategy, international relations and U.S. foreign policy, is available for media interviews.
