Conservative California and the rise of Trump

Hosted by

Donald Trump billed his presidential win as a triumph of Middle America over coastal liberalism -- made possible by the forgotten people of the Midwest and the South. But California served as a major incubator for the hard-line conservative thinking that helped propel him to the White House. It’s an ideology birthed out of opposition to the liberal politics and multiculturalism that now dominate the state.
