Book Launch--The Swing Vote: The Untapped Power of Independents

Overview

Forty percent of all American voters are Independents who occupy the ample political and ideological space in the center. In The Swing Vote: The Untapped Power of Independents, author Linda Killian looks beyond the polls and the headlines and talks with the frustrated citizens who are raising the alarm about the acute bi-polarity, special interest-influence, and gridlock in Congress, asking why Obama’s postpartisan presidency is anything but, and demanding realism, honest negotiation, and a sense of responsibility from their elected officials.

Killian focuses on four key swing states and demographic groups that she predicts could determine the outcome of the 2012 election. She paints a vivid portrait of the swing voters around the country and presents a new model that reveals who they are and what they want from their government and elected officials. She also offers a way forward, including solutions for fixing our broken political system.
