Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Lost Majority: Why the Future of Government Is Up for Grabs - and Who Will Take It (Hardcover)
I strongly encourage anyone who is tired of the inane blathering of today's political pundits, and longs for insightful analysis and truly engaging writing, to purchase this book.
Sean Trende, who is the Senior Elections Analyst for RealClearpolitics.com, is one of the most startling talents to emerge onto America's political stage in ages. Possessing an encyclopedic knowledge of American elections, Mr. Trende is able to make connections and provide insights into electoral trends which lesser pundits are simply incapable of.
In "The Lost Majority", Mr. Trende explains how the dream of a permanent Democratic majority emerging from the 2008 election was an illusion, mainly because all political majorities/coalitions are transitory. What sets this book apart, however, is Mr. Trende's unique insights on demographics. Namely, how much of what you hear that is passed on as "known facts" regarding how racial/ethnic/economic groups vote is simply wrong.
Buy this book! I can promise that what you read will utterly change the way you view American politics. Not many electoral analysts are capable of this. But if you have read Mr. Trende in the past, you know that for him this is routine.
