The 2016 Presidential election is turning out to be unlike any campaign in recent history and it may be having a transformational effect on American politics. Whether that’s good news or very bad news has yet to be seen.
After decades of deepening inequality and unprecedented partisan polarization, the nature of campaign 2016 should come as no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention. But what will American politics — and America itself — look like after the voting booths have closed? Are we headed for ever greater polarization? Will either of the major parties shatter, leaving behind an entirely new political landscape? And how do we finally confront the deeply divisive trends that have delivered us to this moment in history? Those are the among the questions we’ll explore at this month’s Other Voices forum.
