HASH(0x98489d98) out of 5 stars Definitive guide to the 2012 elections, by top experts in the field 22 April 2014
By Purplegrrl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Paul Abramson, John Aldrich, Brad Gomez, and David Rohde have produced the definitive book on the 2012 elections. A lot has already been written about the 2012 contest, but by waiting until the best data from the American National Election Study Survey were available to be analyzed, Abramson and his colleagues have done more than earlier authors to explain Obama's narrow victory over Romney. This was an election that Romney and his team thought they would win the day of the election. How did Obama, whose overall approval among the American public was barely over 50%, manage to win? As the authors show the electorate was more likely to favor Romney's policies than Obama's. The authors convincingly show that the main reason Obama won was that most Americans saw Obama as likely to be concerned about people like themselves, whereas few thought Romney cared. As they also show, the Republicans had so effectively drawn House districts after the 2010 census that they held control of the House even though the Democrats won a larger share of the overall House vote. More than any other book on the 2012 election, this book shows the growing importance of the Hispanic electorate.
