In this episode of American Wonk, Avik Roy returns to the topic of the 2016 election with the guy who had it all figured out before anyone else: Sean Trende the Senior Elections Analyst at RealClearPolitics and author of The Lost Majority: Why the Future of Government is Up for Grabs and Who Will Take It. Sean also co-authored the 2014 edition of the Almanac of American Politics.

Sean discusses his controversial articles from four and three years ago: “The Case of the Missing White Voters,” and “The Case of the Missing White Voters, Revisited,” in which Sean noted that 6 to 7 million white voters who voted in 2008 didn’t show up in 2012. Most notably, those voters weren’t classic conservative voters, but rather blue-collar whites without college degrees in Rust Belt states like Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
