Ballot Talks: Narcissist. Demagogue. Frontrunner.

Listen 0:48:44

Guests: Jason Horowitz, Paul Waldman, Jeffrey Kluger

Narcissist. Demagogue. Loudmouth. Donald Trump has been given a lot of labels lately, but perhaps the most surprising one is “frontrunner.” He has surged and maintained his lead in every Republican primary poll, much to the chagrin of party leaders and moderate Republicans. Today on Ballot Talks on Radio Times, we’ll take a look at the biggest story of the 2016 Presidential race, the rise of the Donald, and try to decipher what is going on in his mind, and in the minds of his supporters. We’ll be joined by JASON HOROWITZ, who covers Trump for The New York Times, and by PAUL WALDMAN, weekly columnist and senior writer for The American Prospect. We’ll also hear from JEFFREY KLUGER, editor at large for TIME magazine who recently updated an excerpt of his book The Narcissist Next Door to examine the mind of Trump.
