The Swing Vote: The Untapped Power of Independents
Thursday February 9, 2012
4:00 – 5:30 p.m.
Moynihan Boardroom, 6th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center
Linda Killian, Author, Journalist, and Senior Scholar, Woodrow Wilson Center
Commentator: Kevin Merida, National Editor, The Washington Post
Forty percent of all American voters are Independents who occupy the ample political and ideological space in the center. In The Swing Vote: The Untapped Power of Independents, author Linda Killian looks beyond the polls and the headlines and talks with the frustrated citizens who are raising the alarm about the acute bi-polarity, special interest-influence, and gridlock in Congress, asking why Obama’s postpartisan presidency is anything but, and demanding realism, honest negotiation, and a sense of responsibility from their elected officials.
Killian focuses on four key swing states and demographic groups that she predicts could determine the outcome of the 2012 election. She paints a vivid portrait of the swing voters around the country and presents a new model that reveals who they are and what they want from their government and elected officials. She also offers a way forward, including solutions for fixing our broken political system.
