Perhaps more than ever, it’s easy to find stories insisting that most voters think, feel, or want one thing – and just as many insisting the exact opposite. This week on State of Belief, Interfaith Alliance’s radio show and podcast, we’ll take a look at where we are now, and where we are likely to be going in the very near future.
Host Rev. Welton Gaddy will be joined by Dr. Robert P. Jones, CEO of the Public Religion Research Institute, for a discussion of the findings from the newly release 2016 American Values Survey. You won’t want to miss this comprehensive and objective look at what Americans are really thinking about religion, politics, key social issues and the future of the nation.
Welton will also be joined by author and journalist Jeff Sharlet, who will share his insights on what to expect after November 8th. Sharlet spent time embedded at numerous Donald Trump campaign rallies while reporting for the New York Times Magazine and got to know many of the supporters. He’ll share his perspective on what motivates them, and what’s in store after the election.
Finally, Welton will be joined by Interfaith Alliance President Rabbi Jack Moline. They’ll discuss the long-term implications of America’s election-year upheaval on policy and politics. CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO AND TRANSCRIPT
