Bill Bishop talked about the increasing divide in US society at ASL

On April 25, 2013, journalist Bill Bishop delivered the second talk of the American Studies Leipzig summer lecture series. Under the title “Disunited States,” Mr. Bishop looked at how voting patterns have changed since the mid-1960s in the US. Evaluating the data of presidential elections in the last 100 years, Mr. Bishop found that the voting in most counties in the US was basically equally Republican and Democrat, but since 1965 more and more people live in so-called landslide counties were the respective candidate wins by 20% of the votes or more.
