    Voters Are Lying To Us. Here's Why It Could Be Helpful

    Tuesday, February 20, 2018

    In campaigns, so much turns on identifying, persuading, and turning out the perennial likely voter. LVs, as they're known, are a consistent target of pollsters and, depending on if they're your supporters, the campaign's broader mobilization efforts. But in 2018, this question persists: How precisely can we measure which voters actually intend to vote, and which don't?

    Why Environmentalists Can't Afford To Wait Until 2018

    Sunday, September 10, 2017

    Many despondent environmentalists are turning their focus to the 2018 midterms as their only chance to get a seat at the policy-making table. That is a big mistake. By focusing on 2018, we're ignoring elections that will have an enormous impact on climate change and the environment -- the 2017 mayoral elections.

    Environmentalists Tend To Have Bad Voting Records - And Lie About It

    Wednesday, August 23, 2017

    The word "environmentalist" usually conjures up an image of passionate activists ready to hold their leaders and community accountable for responsible environmental practices.

    It turns out that's not totally accurate. Voters who say the environment is one of their top two most important issues tend to have pretty abysmal voting records.

    Nathaniel Stinnett founded the Environmental Voter Project in Boston, which looks at voters' habits and patterns. He joined WBUR to discuss his findings.

    Marching is Good. Voting is Better.

    Sunday, March 5, 2017

    "Resistance" will be futile if those horrified by Trump's agenda don't commit themselves to becoming consistent voters in the future. Even if Trump loses in 2020, another right-wing reactionary will come down the pike sooner rather than later, and only sustained progressive turnout will prevent the next Trump from seizing power.

    Why Don't Environmentalists Vote?

    Tuesday, December 27, 2016

    The last few weeks have rocked the environmental movement. In the wake of the November elections, environmentalists are deeply concerned about the future of the Paris climate accord, the rollback of federal environmental protections, and even the fate of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency itself.

    But one of the environmental movement's biggest problems is the same now as it was on November 7: Environmentalists aren't voting.
