Both parties have the Governorships of New Jersey and Virginia to fight in November 2017, which often act as an indicator of what will happen in the midterms. These will be the next acts in an unfolding electoral drama.

Five Big Questions For The Next Year

Have a scroll down your twitter timeline and you might find that everyone is still, at worst, professing about the apocalypse, or at best offering election post-mortems based on analysis of pundits who predicted a Hillary cakewalk. Seemingly contrary to popular belief, after Trump's election, the sun did not cease to shine and life has carried on.

How The Information Revolution Delivered Trump To The World

In the long run, the prospect of higher global debt levels, a more imbalanced global economy led by the US and the potential for the inflation genie finally to be leaking out its bottle after eight years of unprecedented monetary stimulus is alarming. The coming bust will be the biggest in human history.

Trump's Victory Shows The Manifestation Of America's Discontent

Thomas Smith | Posted 11.11.2016 | UK Universities & Education

DONALD Trump's announcement to run for presidency in June 2015 was met largely with laughter and disbelief. Almost 18 months later, his seismic election victory sends shockwaves through America and again causes people to disbelieve- though there are few laughing this time round...

Mrs Clinton Deserves No Pity

Dan Holliday | Posted 10.11.2016 | UK Politics
Dan Holliday

Mrs Clinton does not deserve pity. Her own record coupled with an ill-deserved sense of entitlement to the top job in US politics was her undoing. A great deal of Americans however, whether they believed in her or otherwise, do deserve pity.

Donald Trump Win Proves Liberals Are Out Of Touch

Like most people today across the globe, I can't think of much else other than the fact that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States. I went to sleep the night before whilst Hillary had a comfortable lead, safe in the knowledge that the Democrats would be elected, everything would make sense and no political hegemony would be smashed that night. Boy was I wrong.

If You Want to Defeat The Donald, Stop Ganging Up On Him

Jan Shure | Posted 24.10.2016 | UK Politics
Jan Shure

Over the course of the 2016 election campaign, Trump seems to have morphed into the living breathing proof of Nietzsche's assertion that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Because despite the most recent outrage dubbed, "Pussy-gate", he is unaccountably still standing.

My Surname Used To Be Trump - Here's Why I Had To Change It

Dawn Kelly | Posted 19.10.2016 | UK Politics
Dawn Kelly

To say that I hate Donald Trump would be something of an understatement. Like lots of people, I am sick of hearing his bile and seeing his smug, plasticine face plastered over front-pages and television screens. Unlike most however, my reasons run a bit deeper... For 32 years, I shared the same name as him.

Alaska: The Republican Party's Last Frontier?

Duncan Kenyon | Posted 17.10.2016 | UK Politics
Duncan Kenyon

In many ways, Alaska is the most likely 'strong Republican' state to swing, purely from a mathematical point of view. If Clinton wins this state, it will send a powerful message to the Republicans that no state - even Sarah Palin's - is safe from the Democrats and make their work leading up to 2020 even more difficult.

Clinton Vs Trump - The Electoral College Is Key, Often Misunderstood And Could Be About To Make A Big Shift

Mark Malcomson | Posted 17.10.2016 | UK Politics
Mark Malcomson

If nothing changes at this point, then Hillary could be heading for a win in the Electoral College on a similar scale as Obama. However, if Trump's share of the vote collapses even more, then she could make a seismic change in the way the map looks and the word "landslide" might come into play.

Clinton Vs Trump - Why This Election Is Different

The next four weeks can be expected to produce more twists, turns and most likely outrages. The process can be described as horrific, but like a horror film or a bad soap-opera it is hard to avert your eyes and I feel we will be transfixed until the end.

Did Ted Cruz Cross The Thin Line Between Opportunism And Populism?

J.N. Paquet | Posted 26.09.2016 | UK Politics
J.N. Paquet

On 23 September 2016, US Senator Ted Cruz, one of the most ferocious republican opponents and runner-up of Donald Trump during the Republican primary, announced that he was eventually endorsing him. Why endorsing him so late? Why endorsing him at all?

Unpredictable. But only up to a point. The one thing you can be sure of is that Clinton will continue to hammer Trump on each and every single thing he says and does between now and polling day.

There have been thousands of articles pumped out over the course of the Democratic primary telling us of the 'dangers' of Bernie Sanders. These articles tend to skim over some key points that I find vital to the decision making of Americans voting in these primaries. Let's break some myths.

A Tall Poppy: Donald Trump in a Field of Professional Politicians

Gavin Devine | Posted 14.03.2016 | UK Politics

That is the lesson for mainstream politicians from the rise of Trump and people like him. They don't need to change course and pander to every whim and prejudice of the electorate; instead they need desperately to rediscover the ability to inspire, to excite and to lead.
