Larry Sabato, one of the leading experts in American politics, has brought together respected journalists and academics from across the political spectrum to examine every facet of the 2012 election, and what its development and outcome will mean for the nation moving forward. In... frank, accessible prose, each author offers insight that goes beyond the headlines, and dives into the underlying forces and shifts that drove the election from its earliest developments to its dramatic conclusion. This book contains contributions from: Alan Abramowitz, Emory University Diana Owen, Georgetown Jamelle Bouie, American Prospect James Campbell, SUNY-Buffalo Kyle Kondik and Geoff Skelley, UVA Center for Politics Michael Toner, former FEC chair Nate Cohn, The New Republic Rhodes Cook, formerly of CQ Robert Costa, National Review Sean Trende, RealClearPolitics Susan MacManus, University of South Florida Following Sabato's introductory analysis, the contributors provide a comprehensive review of everything in play during the 2012 elections, including the controversial roles that unprecedented amounts of money and media played in deciding who would occupy the Oval Office as well as pivotal seats in Congress. They also explore the nominating processes, conventions, and futures of both the Democratic and Republican parties, and what recent geographic and demographic electoral realignments might mean for America's politics beyond 2012.
