Professors Weigh Role of Religion in Presidential Election

May 5, 2016

"As the primary season winds down, several Cornell professors said they believe the role religion in this election — as seen in an increase of anti-Muslim sentiment and absence of religious values in the Trump campaign — breaks a trend established in previous elections," writes Emily Freidman in an article for The Cornell Daily Sun.

Professor Ross Brann echos this sentiment, “I actually think [religion] might be playing less of a role — or a less clear role — this time than in the past.”
