More Than Red and Blue, Political Typology Shades of Gray
We often like to think of states in terms of red and blue, and people in terms of Democrats, Republicans and Independents. But, the Pew Research Center finds our politics offers many more shades of gray. Host Ben Kieffer talks with a Pew researcher about their latest political typology study and what hints it might provide for the upcoming midterm elections. Are you a "Young Outsider," or a "Hard Pressed Skeptic?" You can take the quiz here.
