WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“While Donald Trump’s election shocked the Washington establishment, Salena Zito and Brad Todd show that his coalition was hidden in plain sight. Far from a ‘basket of deplorables,’ they’re the forgotten men and women of America, people who work with their hands and on their feet, and who want a government that rewards their work and respects their communities. Zito and Todd tell their story, and anyone interested in American politics would do well to listen.”

INSIDE THE POPULIST COALITION RESHAPING AMERICAN POLITICS

- RUSH LIMBAUGH- JAKE TAPPER

Salena Zito is unique: a truth-telling reporter who found the America that elected Donald Trump. She listened to them. Understands them. Respects them. Not only did she get the election right, but by employing the lost art of shoe-leather journalism, she uncovered an amazing national political realignment that was—and still is—completely invisible to the Wizards of Smart who inhabit our distant capital. Whenever I see her byline, I stop and read. I know it will be that good. You should, too. Don’t doubt me.”

“Salena Zito picked up on a political phenomenon long before polls or pundits had any idea of what was happening. Her drives from Pittsburgh to Cleveland opened her eyes about the rise of Trump and her shoe leather reporting and skills as a journalist helped her understand why. Her voice channeling and explaining these voters is invaluable for the Trump era.”

"Many political pundits wouldn’t know their Ashtabula from a hole in the ground; Zito and Todd surely do and have given us something useful. If you desire a meatier dish from smart writers more comfortable at a local diner than a fru fru Washington, D.C., restaurant, "The Great Revolt" is for you.”

“The Great Revolt is not a screed against “the liberal media” or “media bias,” itis instead some of the voices of the people who had stopped being heard until 2016, people who were first given a choice by Donald Trump, and who have now been given a voice by Salena Zito and Brad Todd. This cross-section of people is worth studying, their stories are worth hearing, not all of them came to Trump the same way, but they all got there eventually. Salena Zito and Brad Todd have done a remarkable job of sharing these stories and showing us how.”

"Salena Zito and Brad Todd examined swing counties in five states that were, up until 2016, the Democrats “blue wall.” The Midwest states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Iowa and Ohio. Their new book, “The Great Revolt,” features profiles of Trump voters, polling data and an examination of the votes. It is chock full of fascinating detail and insightful interviews with Trump voters.“
