San Francisco Chronicle Features Commentary By Politics Professor Steve Woolpert

San Francisco Chronicle logoThe San Francisco Chronicle features an op-ed by Politics Professor Steve Woolpert on how Democrats can bridge the deep political gulf between the white, working-class voters who supported Donald Trump and the urban professionals, LBGT voters and people of color who supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential contest. In the wake of President Trump's surprising victory, Woolpert's op-ed "It’s not the economy; it’s education," explores how educational attainment separates Americans geographically, politically, economically and culturally. He also observes that the best way for Democrats to attract blue-collar white voters is by pledging to provide pathways to upward mobility through higher education.
