The Bitter End: Why American Politics Feels So Stuck and Whether it Will Change
Does it feel like everything is stuck? Democrats and Republicans seem to disagree about everything. No one in Washington wants to cooperate with the other side. Elections seem closer than ever, outcomes seem to turn on a coin flip, and each side thinks its candidate won. How did we get here – and will it ever end? In this lecture, we’ll explore the long-term trends and short-term shocks that have shaped this political moment, while also entertaining possibilities about what could turn this bitter end into a new beginning.
