The Outlook for Political Civility and Compromise in the Trump Age

Mar 30, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:15 PM

Description

The spring 2017 Distinguished Lecturer Series will feature Professor Michael Wolf (political science), who will present "The Outlook for Political Civility and Compromise in the Trump Age."

Lecture synopsis: Political compromise. Does the public want to compromise? One view holds that the public is frustrated by Washington’s gridlock and political leaders who do not pursue pragmatic solutions. And yet, many scholars argue that a substantial percentage of the American public do not want political compromise due to deep ideological beliefs and opposition to the other side.

Research finds that a growing percentage of American partisans do not want to compromise with the other side. Further, the aggressive tone of politics mobilizes them. The question moving forward is how the political system wrestles with many Americans longing for more compromise and civility, while another large percentage of Americans views compromise and civility as selling out the American way of life.
