Greenberg's America Ascendant Sparks Big Debate
Friday, November 20 2015

What Senator Elizabeth Warren says:
"Stan called me a few weeks ago and he said, ‘I have a book that I finished and I think you’re going to like it.’ He sent it over and boy was he right. It was exactly my kind of book. It was full of all kinds of fabulous history, data, and wonky tidbits. It was just delicious, three hundred pages of deliciousness. I could nerd-out all night on this book...Stan is right. Our diversity is what makes us strong. Our diversity is at the heart of how we build the middle class, of how we will build a middle class. Americans are tough. Americans are resourceful. And Americans work hard. And that’s going to make us always, so long as we do that on the ascendancy. Reading through Stan’s book, and just seeing how page after page, he puts pieces of that together and makes it work, was truly an inspiration...Stan, I hope many many people read your book and are inspired by your book, to have the kind of courage it takes to fight for the America that we believe in. An America of progressive values, an America that will build a stronger future.”

What conservative Michael Barone says in the WSJ:
"With “America Ascendant,” the widely respected Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg has written an ambitious book, part history, part social analysis, part campaign memo. Along the way, he provides an interesting diagnosis of America’s ills. Mr. Greenberg believes that “America’s path is to a unified, multicultural identity,” but he is not exactly keen on bringing us together. Like most political practitioners, he looks forward not to ending partisan polarization but to helping his side build a permanent majority. Mr. Greenberg and his focus-group participants aptly describe the problems that candidates of both parties now face. Mr. Greenberg cites both Robert Putnam’s and Charles Murray’s analyses of family disintegration and failed social interconnectedness among Americans who haven’t graduated from college. Amid much fair-minded recounting of Republican opinions, Mr. Greenberg can’t resist some partisan spin. Republicans are so hostile to government and “blue America” that they “nearly disqualify themselves from the public debate.” 

What Walter Isaacson, bestselling author of Steve Jobs, says:
“With a great sense of history as well as a deep understanding of the hopes and fears of today's Americans, Stan Greenberg lays out how reformers must lead a new national renewal. Our demographics and the nature of the workforce are changing in ways not seen since the industrial revolution. We now need a spirit of political reform that will match these challenges.”
