The Holy Vote: The Politics of Faith in America

The Holy Vote: The Politics of Faith in America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Not since the Civil War has the United States been so polarized, politically and ideologically. At the heart of this fracture is a fascinating, paradoxical marriage between our country's politics and religions.

In The Holy Vote, Ray Suarez explores the advent of this polarization and how it is profoundly changing the way we live our lives. With hands-on reporting, Suarez explores the attitudes and beliefs of the people behind the voting numbers and how the political divide is manifesting itself across the country. The reader will come to a greater understanding of what Americans believe, and how this belief structure fuels the debates that dominate the issues on our evening news broadcasts.

Synopsis:

Evaluates the ways in which dialogues between modern voters and people of faith have impacted American politics, examining how the polarization between "red" and "blue" groups reflects core belief systems, an understanding of which the author believes is vital to the explanation of how the nation elects its leaders. 20,000 first printing.
