Captured is the general elections, U.S elections and politics book which briefly explain the influence of the powerful and rich people on the politics of America. Sheldon Whitehouse is the author of this imposing book. He is the former U.S federal prosecutor and senator who offers an eye-catching view of American politics from the last few decades. The people of America knows that things are not working great as they thought but they can’t do anything. There are two political parties in America and the chances of their winning are almost equal every time.
Running political campaigns cost too much for the candidate and for the entire party. The rich people help the candidate to win their elections by spending money on their political campaigns. Once these candidates won their elections than they make policies that help some peoples to make money. These are the typical favor which political parties offer to their investors after coming into power. These policies only work for the rich people and they have nothing to do with the middle-class people. Sometimes, successful people cut down their taxes with the support of the government. Sheldon Whitehouse briefly explains what wrongs in the government by exposing multiple avenues.
The “Game of Thorns: The Inside Story of Hillary Clinton’s Failed Campaign and Donald Trump’s Winning Strategy” is a great book about the election of Donald Trump. Doug Wead is the author of this book. Doug is one of the few living historians to have written about all of the American presidents. Wead has been an employee of ten presidential campaigns. He began as a writer for Ronald Reagan in 1979. In 1989 George H.W. Bush brought him on to seniors’ staff at the White House as a special assistant to the president.
Wead makes two revealing observations about the race with the first being character. Hillary tried to make the character an issue by claiming Trump was temperamentally unfit, but most of the public believed her to be dishonest, so her character ended up being the bigger issue.
