Abstract/Description: This paper analyzes what conditions led to the election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States. The introduction sets the stage for the research question by examining the Trump campaign in the months leading to Election Day. Examination of the campaign’s rhetoric and Trump’s actions indicates that Trump tapped into the electorate’s authoritarian attitudes. Incorporating a measure of authoritarian dispositions that is valid among white non-Hispanic Americans, six linear regression models were estimated to test the hypothesis that those having a high authoritarian disposition were more likely to vote for Donald Trump. The results suggest that having a high authoritarian disposition made a white non-Hispanic voter more likely to vote for Donald Trump than Hillary Clinton.
