The presidential election of 1948 has rightly become a textbook case of malpractice by political pollsters. That year, the policies of the Truman administration split the old Roosevelt Coalition — and with it, the Democratic Party — three ways: Desegregation of the armed forces drove the Dixiecrats to nominate Strom Thurmond; confrontation with the Communists drove the Progressives to run former vice president Henry Wallace; and Truman headed the rump of the party.
The pollsters predicted a narrow win for Republican Thomas Dewey. They were wrong.
The Times editorial board has been sharply critical of the Trump presidency, on grounds of policy and personal conduct. Not all readers have been persuaded. In the spirit of open debate, and in hopes of helping readers who agree with us better understand the views of those who don’t, we wanted to let Mr. Trump’s supporters make their best case for him as the first year of his presidency approaches its close. We have also published some letters from readers who voted for Mr. Trump but are now disillusioned, and from those reacting to these letters and our decision to provide Trump voters this platform.
starting at 11:00 a.m. at Benny’s Cafe located at 5354 S 27th St, Milwaukee, WI 53221.
The Guest Speaker will be Christopher Lawrence, he will speak on the upcoming 2018 State of Wisconsin legislative agenda and the accomplishments of the first year of President Trump, as January 20th is exactly one year since the President was Inaugurated.
Please RSVP Julie Marso at (414) 529-1554 or rjmarso AT yahoo.com.
I look forward to seeing you.
