events_saf_congressialdays2ALEXANDRIA, USA: When voters ask political analyst David Wasserman why Congress is so polarised, he tells them to take a look at their own neighborhoods.

David Wasserman, House Editor for The Cook Political Report, brings his lively and amusing analysis of the current political environment to the Kick-Off Breakfast during SAF Congressional Action Days, March 9-10 in Washington, D.C. Wasserman’s presentation is underwritten by Smithers-Oasis.

Geographically, there’s been “a massive pulling apart of the electorate,” said the House Editor of The Cook Political Report. “Voters, subconsciously or not, are moving to places where the majority of their neighbors agree with them.”

Wasserman is the Kick-Off Breakfast speaker for the Society of American Florists (SAF) Congressional Action Days, March 9-10 in Washington, D.C. His presentation is underwritten by Smithers-Oasis.

“He puts voter trends and the current political climate into very clear perspective, using up-to-date examples from the past week’s news,” SAF COO Drew Gruenburg said.

“It’s best to tell a story using maps and visuals,” Wasserman said. “Just three counties gave President Obama the election in 2014.” Seeing that on a map helps people understand what to expect in 2016.

“Wasserman’s knowledge of the nooks and crannies of political geography can make him seem like a local,” writes Nate Silver in the New York Times’ FiveThirdyEight Blog. The Los Angeles Times recently called him a “whip smart” and “scrupulously nonpartisan” analyst.
