'Unprecedented rift among Republicans puts party's survival in limbo, experts say

Published October 11, 2016

A story on ABC News about the unprecedented disarray in the Republican Party and whether it can reunify after the presidential election interviews James E. Campbell, UB Distinguished Professor of Political Science. “Trump has so many self-inflicted wounds, and the audio from 2005 may have been the last straw for some, but I think most conservatives would have been very pleased and somewhat surprised by how well Trump did in this debate,” he said. The article also appeared in news outlets that include Yahoo News and aired on ABC-TV and ABC News Radio affiliates around the country.

                Campbell also was quoted in the Christian Science Monitor about conservative radio host Glenn Beck calling Hillary Clinton the “moral, ethical choice” between the presidential candidates of the two major parties, although Beck also said he will cast his ballot for Constitution Party nominee Darrell Castle rather than for Clinton. The article also appeared on Yahoo News.
