Shining a Light on Who Voted and Who Should Run
Nick Carnes thinks working-class Americans need seats in government, and that all of us deserve more than polarized, angry politics.
I’m reluctant to discourage people who look at the 2016 election — Republican or Democrat — from interpreting it as a sign that the working class is important. Every class of people is important and deserves to have their needs taken seriously by government.
