Description
Red states, blue states . . . are we no longer the United States? Drawing on polling results and other data, Morris P. Fiorina examines the disconnect between an unrepresentative "political class" and the citizenry it purports to represent. " Disconnect" depicts politicians out of touch with the larger public, distorting issues and information to appeal to narrow interest groups. It can help readers better understand the political divide between leaders and the American public--and help steer a course for change.
