Reviews for Identity Crisis: The 2016 Presidential Campaign and the Battle for the Meaning of America

Praise for John Sides and Lynn Vavreck's The Gamble: Choice and Chance in the 2012 Presidential Election: The 2012 election was when 'Moneyball' defeated 'Game Change'--and Sides and Vavreck explain why political scientists and number-crunchers were able to forecast the results well in advance, while the conventional wisdom was so often wrong. The Gamble is crisply written, comprehensively researched, and carefully argued. It provides the definitive account of what really happened and what really mattered in the campaign. --Nate Silver, author of The Signal and the Noise Praise for John Sides and Lynn Vavreck's The Gamble: Choice and Chance in the 2012 Presidential Election: The book is a game-changer. --Ezra Klein, Bloomberg View Praise for John Sides and Lynn Vavreck's The Gamble: Choice and Chance in the 2012 Presidential Election: [A] [g]ood, sane tome on how the fundamentals matter. --Tyler Cowen, Marginal Revolution Praise for John Sides and Lynn Vavreck's The Gamble: Choice and Chance in the 2012 Presidential Election: In The Gamble, two super-smart thinkers lay out moneyball politics for anyone to understand. --Gregg Easterbrook, ESPN.com
