Public's Growing Preference for Anti-Establishment Leaders

The public's preference for anti-establishment candidates, a symptom of growing distrust in leadership and central planning, extends beyond the 2016 Presidential election. Rahm Emanuel, the slick talking mayor of Chicago, is under fire for covering up the killing of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald on a busy street in 2014, an event at the height of Black Lives Matter movement could have influenced his reelection bid in 2015.

This also raise questions of why did the White House which acted quickly in response to Ferguson killing did not follow a similar approach with Chicago and Obama's former Chief of Staff.

Headline: Analysis: After firing McCarthy, Emanuel faces bigger problem

Now that Rahm Emanuel has gone against his political instincts by firing his larger-than-life police superintendent, the mayor faces an even bigger political dilemma that could define his legacy.

He must find a worthy replacement for Garry McCarthy without making worse racial tensions brought to a boil by the Laquan McDonald shooting video.
