A Long Movement- How the Trump Phenomenon Dates Back to 1964
From Matt Gorney on July 28th, 2020
In 1964, Barry Goldwater lost the presidential election to Lyndon Johnson. At the time, most observers thought it was a “one-off.” Fifty-two years later, Donald Trump won the election. That, too, was judged a “one-off.” In this lecture, Sid Tarrow asserts that neither of these claims are true, but rather both Goldwater and Trump are part of a “long movement,” one that began in 1964.
