Red states, blue states . . . are we no longer the United States? In Disconnect, Morris P. Fiorina examines today's party system to reassess arguments about political polarization while offering a cogent overview of the American electorate.Drawing on polling results and other data, Fiorina examines the disconnect between an unrepresentative "political class" and the citizenry it purports to represent, showing how politicians have become more polarized while voters remain moderate. Disconnect helps readers better understand the political divide between leaders and the American public-and helps steer a course for change.
