Geraldo Cadava

Hillary Clinton got far more Latino votes than Trump in the 2016 election, but he actually did a little better than Mitt Romney had done four years earlier. In fact, a county-by-county voting analysis by our guest in this episode, Geraldo Cadava—professor of history at Northwestern University—found that many Latinos in rural areas pulled the same lever for Donald Trump that middle-class whites did. Cadava, author of Standing on Common Ground: The Making of a Sunbelt Borderland, is currently writing a book about Hispanics and conservative politics. This week, he joins us to talk about these issues and more.
