A Question of Respect: Brining Us Together in a Deeply Divided Nation

Celinda Lake, a Democrat, and Ed Goeas, a Republican, have been crossing party lines for more than three decades to produce the Battleground Poll that takes a bipartisan look at America and its politics. Now they have co-authored a book that draws on what they have learned to describe how America has reached its current, deeply fractured political condition and, more importantly, how the country might move beyond it. These two leading political practitioners visit the Dole Institute to discuss their work, including their central argument that the only way to escape the current polarization is through mutual respect, with Dole Institute Visiting Fellow Gerald Seib.
