More Than a Rural Revolt: Landscapes of Despair and the 2016 Presidential Election,” co-authored by Lerner Chair Shannon Monnat, was cited in the New York Times article, "There’s a Reason Trump Loves the Truckers." Monnat and co-author David L. Brown found that “Trump performed better in counties with more economic distress, worse health, higher drug, alcohol and suicide mortality rates, lower educational attainment and higher marital separation/divorce rates.”
