Outskirts Press Is Pleased to Announce the Release of The Uninformed Voter by Robert Levine
, July 02, 2020 ) In
The Uninformed Voter
draws a straight line between the fact that voters are increasingly uninformed about the candidates, their positions and how government works. And voters lacking information tend to elect officials who are venal, incompetent or unresponsive. Levine also offers solutions that are eminently reasonable.
First, some scary statistics. In a poll of college graduates, only 20 percent could name both of their state’s senators and two-thirds could not name a Supreme Court justice. Another poll showed the general population believed that 25 percent of the federal budget went for foreign aid when it was less than 1 percent. Yet another poll revealed that two-thirds of the population could not name the three branches of the federal government, and only 19 percent of Americans could define one power of the First Amendment.
The Uninformed Voter should be of interest to anyone who follows politics, history or government, as it presents some new and unique ideas regarding the political process. Past surveys and polls demonstrate how most voters have scant information regarding candidates for office and important issues prior to voting. Their choices are often based on tribal proclivities, and they vote against their own interests, needs and concerns. The book urges citizens to learn about the candidates for office and their stances, as well as how the government functions—before voting.
Robert Levine provides examples of governmental and political corruption, inefficiency and partisanship in the United States and other democracies related to citizens’ dearth of information. He also discusses the reasons why voters are uninformed and offers suggestions by various political scientists and philosophers about how to motivate more citizens to gain relevant knowledge before voting—issues more relevant now than ever.
