Powerless Arguments: Demagogue and Populist Language

By Robert Feustel / 28 October, 2018

Right wing populist language doesn’t speak to reason. It plays with emotions and stereotypes, with the purpose of strengthening the differences between the emphatic “us” and the stranger.

By Ken Gude / 14 September, 2016

The 2016 US presidential campaign has entered the home stretch with Hillary Clinton holding a meaningful lead over Donald Trump both nationally and in the battleground states.
