How Demographic, Economic and Social Transformations Will Shape the US Election

Chatham House London, UK


Stanley B Greenberg, Chairman and CEO, Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research
Chair: Xenia Wickett, Head of the US and the Americas Programme, Chatham House


Acclaimed US political strategist Dr Stanley Greenberg will analyse social, economic and cultural change in the US, using his ongoing polling of the American public to explore America’s long-term future and the issues that will define the November election.

Drawing on the themes of his new book, America Ascendant, Greenberg will argue that the rise of Donald Trump represents the dying pangs of an old political order in the US, not the start of a new right wing populism, and that the GOP’s consistent alienation of women, Hispanic and African-American voters has fundamentally shifted American politics. Moreover, he will contend that social transformations are making the US ever more racially and culturally diverse, younger and a more welcoming home to immigrants. These political and demographic shifts will carve out a new central ground in American politics: determining this election and shaping the electorate’s expectations for the effectiveness of the future executive and legislature.

Attendance is strictly by invitation only. To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
