Overview

The Almanac of American Politics is the country’s most relied-upon resource for information about American politicians, political demography, and political trends. First published in 1972, it has appeared biennially since then. The Almanac is organized alphabetically by state, beginning with overview narratives that set forth each state’s political and voting history from earliest trends and elections to the most recent election races, redistricting battles, etc. Profiles of the state’s current governor, US Senators, and US Congressmen follow, detailing campaign expenditures, voting records, and interest group ratings, among other statistics. Each district is profiled separately, offering demographic information about income, education, median age, and racial distribution. The 2014 edition will detail the changes brought about by the most recent elections.
 
The Almanac’s reputation as the best resource for reliable, current information about the American political scene is unquestioned. It enjoys great prestige among journalists, politicos, and politically involved people across the spectrum. Judy Woodruff wrote, “It’s simply the oxygen of the political world.” Jim Lehrer calls it “the single best reference there is for Congress and Washington specifically, and the country generally," and Cokie Roberts has said “none of us could live without it.” Beyond these Washington elites, thousands of people in businesses, institutes and think tanks, and various research settings, academic and otherwise, turn to the Almanac for information about both national and state politics.

An excellent and informative book about each legislative district and the person representing them. Also gives a good political history of all districts and each state as a whole
