About this Item

Sewn binding. [14], 321, [1] pages. Illustrations. Notes. Signed by author. Signed by Greenberg on t-p. James "Ragin' Cajun" Carville and less-ragin' pollster Stan Greenberg helped Bill Clinton become president and still make a living helping their party sell its ideas to voters. For "It's the Middle Class, Stupid!," they interviewed middle-class Americans and found that if Democrats want to win in 2012, they must reframe their message to directly appeal to this demographic. Chester James Carville, Jr. (born October 25, 1944) is an American political commentator and media personality who is a prominent figure in the Democratic Party. Carville gained national attention for his work as the lead strategist of the successful presidential campaign of then-Arkansas governor Bill Clinton. Carville was a co-host of CNN's Crossfire until its final broadcast in June 2005. He has appeared on CNN's news program The Situation Room. Stanley Bernard "Stan" Greenberg (born May 10, 1945) is a leading Democratic pollster and political strategist who has advised the campaigns of Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and John Kerry, as well as hundreds of other candidates and organizations in the U. S. and around the world. His 1985 study of Reagan Democrats in Macomb County, Michigan became a classic of political strategy, and the basis for his argument that Democrats must actively work to present themselves as populists advocating the expansion of opportunity for the middle class.

About this title

Synopsis:

It’s the Middle Class, Stupid! confirms what we have all suspected: Washington and Wall Street have really screwed things up for the average American. Work has been devalued. Education costs are out of sight. Effort and ambition have never been so scantily rewarded. Political guru James Carville and pollster extraordinaire Stan Greenberg argue that our political parties must admit their failures and the electorate must reclaim its voice, because taking on the wealthy and the privileged is not class warfare—it is a matter of survival. Told in the alternating voices of these two top political strategists, It’s the Middle Class, Stupid! provides eye-opening and provocative arguments on where our government—including the White House—has gone wrong, and what voters can do about it. 

Controversial and outspoken, authoritative and shrewd, It’s the Middle Class, Stupid! is destined to make waves during the 2012 presidential campaign, and will set the agenda for legislative battles and political dust-ups during the next administration.
