Political competition (the Trump effect)

Nick Ulrich, Columnist

October 30, 2019

Donald Trump was never treated as a favorite, or even as an equal during the 2016 election. Most people considered him to be out from the beginning, but eventually he pushed his way past all the other Republican candidates (most...
