Description
Why is it so much easier for the Democratic Party to win the national popular vote than to build and maintain a majority in Congress? Many place exclusive blame on partisan gerrymandering and voter suppression. Rodden shows that the left's electoral challenges have deeper roots in economic and political geography. Left-wing parties have become coalitions of diverse urban interest groups, from racial minorities to the creative class. Rodden points to electoral reforms that could address the left's under-representation while reducing urban-rural polarization. --,adapted from jacket.
