Whiskey and Wine: Reid Wilson on the Two Americas in Elections
Reid Wilson, editor of The Washington Post’s Read In, the paper’s must-read morning tip sheet on everything political, spots trends as they develop and forecasts election and legislative outcomes before the votes have been tallied. Recently, Reid previewed the 2014 midterm elections (“We don’t have to see a wave for Republicans to take back the Senate”) and beyond, diving into data to explain how campaigns target voters by what magazine they subscribe to, what TV shows the watch, and even what they like to drink (“If you’re drinking a whiskey, you’re probably going to be voting Republican”).
