Donald Trump has brought conspiracy theories into the mainstream political debate. We spoke with political scientist Joe Uscinski, author of American Conspiracy Theories, about what impact this has had on American politics and elections.
- How playing on conspiracy theories can be key to electoral success – Joe Uscinski – June 7, 2016
- How exposure to conspiracy theories can reduce trust in government. – Katherine Levine Einstein and David M. Glick – November 13, 2015
- Voters on the extreme left and right are far more likely to believe in conspiracy theories – Jan-Willem van Prooijen – 2 March, 2015
- Beliefs in conspiracies tend to accord with political attitudes, making it unlikely that any one conspiracy theory will be embraced by the country. – Joe Uscinski – 17 September, 2013
