Bill Schneider - Standoff: How America Became Ungovernable — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Thursday, May 17, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Going back to the 1960s, when a rift developed between a New America and an Old America, Schneider analyzes several decades’ worth of key elections, using Americans’ voting habits to trace the populist currents that eventually put Trump in the White House. Schneider, who was CNN’s senior political analyst from 1990 to 2009 and now teaches at George Mason University, identifies American populism as economically progressive and culturally conservative. Trump, however, is the perfect storm of social populism, economic populism, and isolationism. Arguing that the electorate lets values and public opinion outweigh economics, Schneider explains how a committed minority has thwarted the majority on issues such as gun control, immigration, small government, and international interests.
