  • What do voters need to hear from the GOP, Democratic conventions?

    Professor John Murphy

    The presidential candidates and their parties will be talking to voters through their conventions over the next two weeks. Communication professor John Murphy, who studies presidential rhetoric, says Donald Trump will need to break out from his niche market and “pass the presidential timber test.” Hillary Clinton will need to rise above “wonkiness” and specifics, and show she has a vision for the country.
