Reactionary Republicanism

How the Tea Party in the House Paved the Way for Trumps Victory

Bryan T. Gervais and Irwin L. Morris

  • Compares the Tea Party in Congress to others in the Republican caucus on a broad range of fiscal policy issues
  • Connects the subgroup of constituents who were energized by a dystopic "digital homestyle" to the core of the Trump voters
