Rhetoric of Divisive Partisanship : The 2016 American Presidential Campaign Discourse of Bernie Sanders
About this item
This book deconstructs the 2016 campaign appeals of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump to disenfranchised and polarized publics at opposite ends of the political spectrum through a rhetoric of divisive partisanship grounded in antipolitics. These ultimately contributed to the defeat of Hillary Clinton and a decline in American democratic discourse.
