Welcome to Jack Murphy Live

Jack is a writer, speaker, podcaster, and author of Democrat to Deplorable: Why Nine Million Obama Voters Ditched the Democrats and Embraced Donald Trump.  

Jack has a B.A. in Economics from George Mason University and a Masters degree from the Georgetown School of Foreign Service. At GU he studied International Finance and International Affairs. Previously, Jack worked for a hedge fund, he was a real estate developer, and for the last ten years, Jack was a Charter School Executive Director where he was a school-turn-around expert who helped solve some of our most intractable education problems. Jack uses this diverse background to shed light on all his writing, speaking, and podcasting.

Jack’s early writings focused on relationship dynamics, healthy sexual behaviors, and general self-improvement. But his analysis led him to realize that which disrupts the bedroom also disrupts the nation. The same forces which destabilize traditional male-female relationships also tear the country apart. Discovering the true nature of the new culture war brought Jack into politics, philosophy, and journalism.

His latest book, Democrat To Deplorable takes a deep look into the Democrats who proudly switched parties to vote for President Donald Trump. These voters feel the cold edge of the culture war more than any other group and this book captures their experiences and the current zeitgeist. Based on a national survey, in-depth interviews, and a personal narrative, Democrat To Deplorable is the definitive book that explores and explains the current cultural climate leading to President Donald Trump and Trumpism.

Jack is an emerging personality in the evolving New Media space. He has been cited in The New Yorker, BuzzFeed, and The Atlantic.
