1968: The Year That Rocked American Politics, A Discussion with E.J. Dionne, Jr.

The Marist College Poll presents the first installation in a four-part panel series, 1968: The Year that Rocked American Politics. The series commemorates 50 years since 1968, the tumultuous year in American society which laid the groundwork for today’s political system and defined a generation.

In this first discussion, we were pleased to welcome E.J. Dionne, Jr., columnist for The Washington Post, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and author of One Nation After Trump: A Guide for the Perplexed, the Disillusioned, the Desperate, and the Not-Yet-Deported. Dionne offered his unique insights into 1968 and its impact 50 years later.

1968: The Year that Rocked American Politics is hosted by the team behind the Marist Poll’s podcast, Poll Hub — Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion and member of the political science faculty at Marist College, Dr. Barbara L. Carvalho, Director of the Marist Poll, and Jay DeDapper, Director of Innovation at the Marist Poll.

1968: The Year that Rocked American Politics is presented in conjunction with Dr. Miringoff’s course of the same name offered this semester at Marist College.
