US Late Night Panel: Negative campaigning, ‘the end of whiteness’, rise of independents

Care to join us later? Our regular #MainStreetMatters panel will try to deconstruct what’s happening to America…

Tonight, we’re looking at the economy, Romney and the rapid changes in demography that may condition any bounce back for the GOP, either pre or post the election…

Myself and Kevin Anderson recorded this taster earlier to whet your appetite…

We’ll be joined this evening by Kellyanne Dignan, Ruarai McKenna and Mel Dubnick.. Kick off time is roughly 11am BST, which is 6pm EST and 3pm in LA…

Tune in to watch here later, better still if you have a Google Plus account, join us on Google Plus… Ping me at gplus.to/mickfealty and we can even bring you in.

    Excellent input into the election from Kevin Anderson & Mick above well worth listening to if you have time and interest .
    Anderson’s point re America’s radical ‘middle ‘ is well made as was Mick’s observation re the Republican party schism between the Tea Party faction and the non Tea Party traditionalists and the fact that between these two stools Mr Romney has been unable to emerge with a clear credible alternative to the current administration .

    The suppressed anger felt by much of the American people since the financial collapse is not directed at Obama but instead goes back to the earlier Bush era .

    Romney’s attempt to place the blame on Obama has backfired as many Americans are smart enough to now realise if not understand fully that the roots of the current deficit go back much further some would say back to the Reagan era of trickle down economics .
