America’s two predominant political parties—Democratic and Republican—are billion-dollar economic and political engines with extensive influence on the policies that impact Americans’ daily lives. As the political divides between these parties grow, Americans are increasingly asking, “Do these parties truly represent me?” and “Who is really benefitting from this two-party system?”
On January 27, American Public Square at Jewell hosted a Signature Series program that explored the complexities of bipartisanship. We looked at emerging models of election reform and legislative representation to consider whether any of them stand a chance at changing the political landscape in America.
