Overview

"America's Forgotten Majority explains how and why the Democratic party lost the support of the white working class by ignoring the interests of this critical block of American voters. While detailing the costs of this defection from the Democratic party over the last thirty years, Teixeira and Rogers argue for the centrality of working class concerns to the political process as a whole. America's Forgotten Majority shows that politicians are increasingly pitching their message to an upscale audience that excludes the preponderance of American, and traditionally Democratic, voters." "America's Forgotten Majority also describes a platform for a progressive coalition attuned to the needs of everyday Americans and explains why this reality, which for so many years has been mistaken as a liberal politician's dream, is possible today."--BOOK JACKET.
