Stateside: Roots of Trumpism in Michigan; using self-compassion to get through pandemic parenting

Brookings Institute non-resident senior fellow John Austin says that in 2016, Michigan's former industrial communities and rural areas struggling in a changed economy voted for President Donald Trump. And in 2020, he says, that trend accelerated.

Today on Stateside, now that Michigan's ballots have been counted, political demographers are examining the state's 2020 election results. An expert at the Brookings Institute talked to us about how and where support for President Donald Trump formed roots in Michigan—and whether it's likely to continue after he leaves office. Also, we revisit a conversation about parenting amid the COVID-19 pandemic and talk to a Detroit hip-hop artist about breaking the mold in a city rich with talent.
