Inside Politics w/ Bill Schneider - February '14

In our February 2014 Inside Politics Newsletter, Bill Schneider writes about the three big reasons why Congress will have a very cautious 2014. He also discusses Barack Obama and the “Misery Index,” as well as the favorability ratings of the President, Vice President, and both Clintons. The back page infographic illustrates the Four Tickets to the Middle Class: a college education, owning a home, health insurance, and retirement savings. It seems that a middle class job no longer supports a middle class life.

The 2016 presidential campaign is well underway. We’re now in the guerrilla war stage and Benghazi vs. Bridgegate is the first skirmish. More on this, as well as the public’s view on Edward Snowden, a look at the growing differences in social policies between red states and blue states, and a new infographic on the lethal history of the Caucasus Emirate, a Russian terrorist group that has threatened to attack the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi with “maximum force.”

Inside Politics w/ Bill Schneider - Nov/Dec '13

In the November/December 2013 Inside Politics Newsletter, Bill Schneider writes about the Democrats’ use of the “nuclear option” to eliminate most filibusters of presidential nominations, the Republicans guerrilla war aimed to sabotage Obamacare, the public backlash against government-ensured healthcare that was building even before Barack Obama’s election to the Presidency, as well as a recent study that ranks former Presidents based on their levels of “grandiose narcissism.” And check out the infographic on the back page… the polls could not be clearer: It’s Still the Economy, Stupid.

Newsletter

Inside Politics w/ Bill Schneider - October '13

In the October 2013 Inside Politics Newsletter, Bill writes about the current state of the Republican Party and the potential for it to split. Much like when Theodore Roosevelt ran for President as the Progressive Party candidate in 1912, could New Jersey Governor Chris Christie be the Bull Moose candidate of our era? The In Focus pieces on p. 3 discuss the narrowing margins of victory in Presidential elections, and what that means for Presidents’ ability to govern, as well as a comparison of today’s shutdown with the showdown between President Clinton and Speaker Gingrich in 1995-96.

Newsletter

Inside Politics w/ Bill Schneider - September '13

In the September 2013 Inside Politics Newsletter, Bill writes about rebellions among both Republicans and Democrats against their respective party leaders. Each rebellion is fueled by significant public support from base voters. The In Focus pieces on p. 3 discuss the contrast between the two Republicans running for governor this year and the party leanings of legal and illegal Latino immigrants. And the infographic on the back page illustrates why for many hopeful immigrants, “The Waiting is the Hardest Part.”

In the July/August 2013 Inside Politics Newsletter, Bill writes about how Republicans only have one thing on their mind: killing Obamacare at whatever cost. On p. 3, he examines why support for the war in Afghanistan hasn’t dissolved as quickly as for the U.S. wars in Iraq, Vietnam or Korea. He also takes a look at what young New York voters think about the Carlos Danger scandal. The infographic on the back page is one of the seven state snapshots we recently published that illustrate the shocking availability of guns for purchase online, without a background check.

In the June 2013 Inside Politics Newsletter, Bill reviews the recent “autopsies” of the Republican Party.

He also examines how the partisan tables have turned regarding the NSA surveillance program.

The results may surprise you.

Inside Politics w/ Bill Schneider - April '13

In the April 2013 Inside Politics Newsletter, Bill looks ahead to the 2014 midterm elections. We don’t yet know what the compelling issue in that election will be, but as SNL’s Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say, “It’s always something.”

Newsletter
