The Globe and Mail spoke to UBC professor Paul J. Quirk, who holds the Phil Lind Chair in U.S. Politics and Representation, about the Republican leadership race in the United States.
“The great difficulty in U.S. politics nowadays is the severe polarization between Republicans and Democrats in Washington D.C. A relatively moderate Republican president would create the best opportunities for bipartisan cooperation in some real solutions to policy problems like the deficit,” says Quirk.
