Never Trump

The revolt of the conservative elites

Robert P. Saldin and Steven M. Teles

  • Explains the reasons for the widespread and unprecedented intra-party opposition to Trump, why it took the form it did, and its long-term consequences
  • Reveals the critical variations in opposition and why some elements of the party elite — its foreign policy experts and conservative intellectuals — took a stance of maximal opposition and were largely unified in their Never Trumpism while other GOP elites — its campaign professionals and lawyers — grudgingly came to terms with Trump, thereby isolating the few Never Trump holdouts
  • Anticipates the impact of the Never Trump network on the future of the Republican and Democratic parties, conservatism, and American politics
