For decades the country's political destiny has been determined by the swing-voting, tree-lined streets of suburbia.
Research from AU's American Communities Project finds this is changing. The ACP has identified racial, ethnic and economic changes in the last decade reflecting a significant shift in the suburbs, swinging them Democratic and altering America's electoral calculus.
Join us for a discussion of these changes and what they mean for Virginia and other states this November and for elections in 2014 and 2016.
Panelists: Dante Chinni (AU), Antoine Yoshinaka (AU), Bill McInturff (Republican Pollster and WSJ contributor), Michael Bloomfield (Democratic Pollster and director, the Mellman Group), and Elizabeth Williamson (WSJ Journalist, national political reporter who covered 2012 presidential election)
