Donald Trump in Fayetteville, 2016-2017

Donald Trump came to Fayetteville twice in 2016.  His rally on March 9, 2016 came soon after his victories in the “Super Tuesday” primaries enshrined him as the front-runner in the Republican Presidential nominating contest. This rally would gain notoriety as the one at which an African American protester was “sucker punched” (and subsequently handcuffed), amidst a more general backdrop of fraught language and seemingly increasing violence.  Professors Carl Dyke and Patrick O’Neil interviewed people waiting in line to get into the rally.  His rally on August 9, 2016 was more subdued, but followed his acceptance of the Republican nomination for president.  Dyke and O’Neil were joined that day outside the arena by Professor Peter Murray. After Donald Trump was inaugurated as President of the United States, interviews were conducted of his supporters to see if their opinions had changed from the time of his campaign to his presidency.
