Hosts: American Enterprise Institute, Brookings Institution. This second conference about "Red, Blue, and Purple America" brings back the panelists who convened in February 2008 to discuss America's changing demographic trends and electoral landscape. Last year, leading demographers, political scientists, and analysts examined the electoral impact of generational changes, alterations in class and family structure, minority voting patterns, changing urban-suburban mix, and shifts in religious belief. The papers were gathered in Red, Blue, and Purple America: The Future of Election Demographics (Brookings Institution Press, 2008). Now, experts will analyze the 2008 demographic electoral transformation and what it may mean for the 2010 and 2012 elections.
