John Judis examines populism of the left and the right. Rick Hasen has ideas on how to reform campaign financing. And Bill Press interviews former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley.
Journalist and author John Judis says populism, from left or right, can demonstrate something is wrong with the body politic, but it rarely succeeds in governing. Professor Rick Hasen argues that money doesn’t buy election outcomes but does increase your chances. And Bill Press interviews former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, who says Donald Trump is a “Russian dupe” and a “jackass.”
Author John Judis has written a book on the history of populism. On the left, he says, populism is the people against the elite. On the right, it is attacking the elite for coddling outsiders.
Law professor Rick Hasen says money may not WIN you the election but it sure gives you a better chance, and he is critical of Democrats as well as Republicans for maintaining the current system of campaign financing.
Coming up, former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley analyzes the election on the Bill Press Show.
