Post Election Analysis

Results suggest a move in the right direction for America.

Americans hit the polls last Tuesday at record levels, and the candidates who were elected suggest the American political scene  is changing. Winners came from a greater diversity of backgrounds — e.g., women and minorities — getting closer to mirroring the diversity of the country.

But we’re not there yet. For example, women make up 50% of the population, but they hold only about 20% of the governor offices, and about the same percentage of seats in the Senate and House of Representatives. Minorities account for almost 40% of the population, but only about 20% of the elected officials in Congress. Still, it’s an improvement, and could signal a more inclusive form of governing in the future.

Bill Wood and Peter Goldsmith discuss the impact of a more diverse electorate on our country. Click on the arrow below to listen to their podcast.
