Thanks to CNN for having me on State of the Union with Candy Crowley today to talk about the upcoming elections!
Politics. Policy. Polling. Pop Culture.
It’s really hard to convince a large culture of consultants and operatives to throw away the things they used to do and think about things in an entirely new way…
Last month, I took a huge step: I launched my own company. After eight extraordinary years at The Winston Group learning from the best in the business, I took some time off to write and travel, and then jumped back into things with my own shop. Along with co-founder Patrick Ruffini, we are offering polling, digital intelligence, and everything in between. The last few weeks have been an incredible adventure and I’m excited to share it with the world. Come check us out!
For all the talk about the GOP’s problems winning female voters, they actually won women (by a very thin margin) in the 2010 midterms nationwide according to exit polls. While I’m a huge advocate for the party modernizing and speaking to all audiences and proposing policies that appeal to those who are not old, white, and male, I think it is interesting to see how the GOP’s “gender gap” problem is not a new phenomenon. It didn’t happen overnight and won’t be fixed overnight.
