In 2016 Donald Trump became US President despite winning almost 3 million fewer votes than Hillary Clinton.

In this episode of City Talks we talk to award-winning academic Jonathan Rodden, Professor of Political Science at Stanford University and author of the book Why Cities Lose.

He explores the origins of America’s urban-rural political divide and explains how economic geography shapes elections – both in the USA and beyond.
