A Conversation with

Seth Blumenthal

Author, Children of the Silent Majority: Young Voters and the Rise of the Republican Party, 1968-1980


Seth Blumenthal, lecturer at Boston University, will discuss his new book that explores how President Nixon built a political majority after the 1968 election by developing and implementing a forward-thinking, innovative appeal to young voters.

In this regard, the book considers Nixon’s policies on the environment, ending the draft, and lowering the voting age to 18 years old. It also shows how despite pollsters, pundits, and politicians’ expectations that American youth tends to lean left, Nixon’s effort in the 1972 election established a model for youth campaigning that influenced successful GOP strategies in future elections.
