Overview
The Center for American Progress and the American Enterprise Institute are leading Washington think tanks working at the intersection of politics and policy. This grant would allow experts in demography and public opinion at both institutions to jointly assess likely trends and patterns of diversity in the U.S. population over the next several decades. These projections will have major implications for our political system and the polarization that is now so readily observable within it. Having experts from these two different institutions publicly project, discuss, and debate our nation’s evolving demographics will help illuminate the path forward—and pitfalls to avoid—for political leaders and policy advocates alike.
