Hans Noel and the Parties

In the Democratic primary, the party decided on Hillary Clinton. Among the Republicans, however, Donald Trump captured the nomination from a party splintered among factions. How did this come to be, and how will Trump change the Republican Party?

For episode 20, Professor Hans Noel (Georgetown University) returns to Campaign Context to discuss how the parties decided on the two candidates. Noel is the author of Political Ideologies and Political Parties in America, and the co-author of The Party Decides: Presidential Nominations Before and After Reform. Noel is also a frequent contributor to the political science blog The Mischiefs of Faction, and he appeared as the guest on episode 3 of Campaign Context.
