Event Details

The Economy and The Electorate: A New Hampshire Primary Heartland Briefing

Just days before the New Hampshire primary officially launches the 2012 presidential race, a panel of campaign officials, national pollsters, party strategists and leading economists will explore how economic issues will impact the upcoming race.

Drawing on the top findings and highlights from the Heartland Monitor Poll, this event will provide a compelling profile of the most significant voting bloc in America today: the middle class. In a series of panel discussions, experts will offer insight on the top economic concerns for Americans; including retirement, debt, housing and the manufacturing sector. Using polling data, these experts will also explore middle class perspectives on economic security, social mobility and outlooks on the future.

Join National Journal and The Atlantic as we examine these major economic policy issues that are likely to frame the 2012 presidential election.
