Summary

Red State, Blue State, Rich State, Poor State. Why Americans Vote the Way They Do. By Andrew Gelman, David Park, Boris Shor, Joseph Bafumi, and Jeronimo Cortina. Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ, 2008. 247 pp. $27.95, £16.95. ISBN 9780691139272.

Beginning with the paradox that while rich states have tilted toward the Democratic Party, rich voters still tend to favor the Republicans, the authors explore voting patterns in recent U.S. elections and their implications for American politics.
