Editorial Reviews

Review

"Why did a region so clearly identified with Barry Goldwater, Paul Laxalt, and Orrin Hatch start tilting Democratic in the last decade? Public opinion analyst Ruy Teixeira and a talented group of demographers, geographers, and political scientists explain why this has happened, and why the trend may continue. If you want to look more deeply into party divisions and population trends affecting the upcoming election, this is the book for you." —John B. Judis, Senior Editor, The New Republic



"Ruy Teixeira is one of our premier students of the interaction of demographic trends and electoral politics. America's New Swing Region is required reading for political junkies on all points of the political spectrum." —Michael Barone, principal author, The Almanac of American Politics



"Ruy Teixeira once again demonstrates his prowess for analyzing demographic changes and the political shifts that occur alongside them. For anyone, especially any political professional, who is thinking seriously about the national electoral landscape, this book is essential for understanding the dynamic shifts that have transformed the Mountain West into a critically important swing region." —Joel Benenson, lead pollster for President Barack Obama



"All of the elements of America's decades-long demographic transformation —the Latino population boom, the rise of the college-educated upper middle class, the increasing diversity of the inner suburbs —come into particularly sharp relief in the mushrooming states of the Mountain West. What had been a Republican stronghold is now contested ground, where both major parties will invest enormous sums in 2012 and in many elections to come. America's New Swing Region is an indispensable guide to the states that now hold the key to the White House." —Reihan Salam, editor of The Agenda blog, National Review Online
