How Does UK View America’s Tumultuous Political Season? 

Within less than two weeks, the world has watched as former President Donald Trump was almost assassinated, President Joe Biden announced he was ending his bid for reelection, and Vice President Kamala Harris has emerged as the leading choice for the Democratic Party nomination for president.

From within the U.S., it feels like a tumultuous time in American politics . But how is the world—and specifically, the United Kingdom—viewing “the land of the free and home of the brave” right now? 

The U.K. is “very concerned” by recent events in America, says Matthew Goodwin, a professor of politics and international relations at the University of Kent and a senior fellow at the Legatum Institute, a London think tank.

“The attempted assassination of Donald Trump was seen as a symbol of a country that is very divided and polarized,” according to Goodwin. “There’s an awareness that the rhetoric has become extreme, not just around the former president, but also on the Left of American politics.” 

Goodwin joins “The Daily Signal Podcast ” to discuss Europeans’ views of America’s fraught election cycle, and to discuss the results of the U.K’s own recent elections that resulted in the worst-ever election defeat for Britain’s Conservative Party.
