Summary
  • "Welcome to the real America, dominated by America's "forgotten majority"--White working-class men and women who make up fifty-five percent of the voting population. In America's Forgotten Majority, Ruy Teixeira and Joel Rogers argue persuasively that this group, and not the oft-quoted "soccer moms and wired workers," will decide the fate of America's commitment to a strong government in the years to come. Using exit interviews, census data and other sources from the last forty years of elections, Teixeira and Rogers argue that the key to reaching these voters is offering programs that will both radically improve their economic situation and remain consistent with their deeply held values, among them fairness, hard work and equal opportunity."--Jacket
