On the Rocks's politica podcast


Oct 16, 2020

In our inaugural episode Scott J. Graves and Scott M. Graves tackle the phenomenon of the unenrolled (independent) voter from a local/state then national perspective. Think it's not important? nationally a full third of voters are unenrolled in a major political party, 62.3% of voters in Massachusetts are unenrolled. We explore how we got here from the 1950's to now, why this phenomenon is or may not be that important and we brush up on the details behind our most recent special mayoral election. We also offer a book recommendation, These Truths: A History of the United States by Jill Lapore, published by Norton.
