Book Culture, an independent bookstore in New York City, is hosting an election eve discussion with Andrew Gelman, author of Red State, Blue State, Rich State, Poor State: Why Americans Vote the Way They Do.
Andrew will be joined by Prof. David Epstein (political science, Columbia University) for a frank discussion of
- What historical data can really tell us about how rich and poor people vote.
- The truth of the red/blue state divide and how it might impact tomorrow’s election.
- What issues really matter to rich and poor voters.
- Why voting is a bit like “buying a Powerball ticket” .
A great discussion is expected, so if you are in the area we urge you to join in the fun!
