Editorial Reviews


"Indeed, to read through the seven informative essays in Red, Blue, and Purple America--devoted to such subjects as changes in family structure, the growth of new types of suburbs, the "clustering" by which demographic groups tend more and more to live together, and the rise of the more liberal "Millennial" generation--is to see that almost every major demographic trend favors the Democratic Party over the long term." —Michael Tomasky, New York Review of Books

"This book is full of information presented in words, tables and charts. The authors offer numerous insights into voting trends, a few surprises, and much food for thought. If you want to know why the 2008 election was not an aberration, read this book." — Senior Women Web

"There have been many efforts to find the one key voting bloc that will turn the election--soccer moms, Wal-Mart Moms, office-park Dads--but in Red, Blue, and Purple America, Ruy Teixeira explains why those descriptions have always been too simplistic or wildly wrong." —John Dickerson, Slate

Ruy Teixeira is a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution, a senior fellow at the Century Foundation and the Center for American Progress, as well as a fellow of the New Politics Institute. He is the coauthor, with John B. Judis, of The Emerging Democratic Majority, selected by the Economist as one of the best books of 1992. He is also the author of The Disappearing American Voter (Brookings, 1992) and coauthor, with Joel Rogers, of America's Forgotten Majority: Why the White Working Class Still Matters (Brookings, 2001).Teixeira and Karlyn Bowman codirect the joint Brookings--American Enterprise Institute project on "The Future of Red, Blue and Purple America," from which this book emerges.
