The Neglected Voter: White Men and the Democratic Dilemma

by

The Neglected Voter: White Men and the Democratic Dilemma Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the 1960s, the Republican Party began to win over a crucial demographic: white male voters.  Presidential politics was transformed for a generation.

David Paul Kuhn explains this fundamental fact behind the rise of the Republicans and the decline of the Democrats, and reminds the political left that midterm victories (1986, 2006) do not always equal sustainable success. In revealing, lucid prose, Kuhn explains how America's conservative party came to win a majority of workingmen and the White House.  Grounded in practical politics, The Neglected Voter presciently reconfigures the American political landscape. Equipped with unprecedented research data, reporting, and exclusive interviews with such figures as Jimmy Carter, Norman Mailer, Mark Warner, and Pat Robertson, Kuhn examines the role of gender and racial identity in presidential politics through the social changes that have defined the last half century.

Synopsis:

Forget Soccer Moms and the key demographic du jour.  Winning elections means going back to basics

Synopsis:

In the 1960s, the Republican party won over a crucial demographic: white male voters, and the game was changed for both parties. The Neglected Voter explains how Republicans came to dominate the White House and what Democrats can do to continue their efforts to turn the Red tide. Equipped with rare access to exit polls, exclusive interviews and unprecedented research data, Kuhn examines the role of gender and racial identity and each party's gains and losses through the social changes of the last fifty years.
