Meet Lee Drutman

The author of Breaking the Two-Party Doom Loop comes to DC on Thurs., Jan. 2nd, at 7PM!

Meet Lee Drutman

A senior fellow in the Political Reform program at New America and author of The Business of America Is Lobbying, Drutman combines history, democratic theory, and cutting-edge political science research to argue that the main reason for the current political deadlock is the two-party system. While in the past the two parties contained multiple factions, today, without conservative Southern Democrats and liberal Northeastern Republicans, they have hardened into a rigid partisanship that runs counter to the anti-majoritarian, compromise-driven governing institutions. The answer, Drutman says, is to increase the number of parties through electoral reform, a change that won’t require a constitutional amendment.
