Description
This discussion by Robert Finch, counselor to President Nixon, the second US president from California, is about the diversity of themes seen in state elections in the atypical and unique non-presidential election year of 1970. He sees the possibility of an entire generation of uninterrupted peace. In this light, he proposes a domestic peacetime agenda that addresses health care, education, and welfare. This agenda can be achieved if a new social consensus can be forged. Robert H. Finch earned his BA and MA in southern California, was lieutenant governor of California from 1967 to 1969, and secretary of Health, Education and Welfare from 1969 to 1970.

nonpartisan HHR this form I would stand up to offer you a mini view or on your taste ladies impose a video view 00:06:55 view of where we stand in the Union at this point in Sherwood sure with you by observation what's happening out there in this most ATP typical and unique of recent non presidential election years can I put a time frame a lot of 25 years this is off is a way of saying if I made that there are no overwhelming trans is it true that trans or always easier to spot the day after election why are on October 23rd but I think the interns of recent historical 00:07:30 parallels this is the situation this year will be unique we had to send a class of 1958 Leonard office so many democratic fisheries of economic recession of that year and six years later the same plaza Alaskan up for reelection the climate of a record shattering presidential landslide President Johnson in 1964 what this year in the stage for the first time time in Arizona careers they have to stand safe by state issue by issues 00:08:05 do with her opponent with all the benefits and handicap saloon coming season ambien in most of these races items are the only common feature is the very diverse University of themes and issues that have surfaced and according to the polls they bury state by state in one state student arrested Cambridge Sharpie the service in Wisconsin with the bombing there another mother of crime and the social permissiveness issue liners syndrome in another inflation unemployment play hard hit is Michigan as well as 00:08:40 Willits California Connecticut Texas off and then finally you have the SoCal personality factor of some call it Christmas what is 2nd Ave servation Falls logically in that is the all the old search CertainTeed the old coalitions the old voting blocs loyalties and party labels are up for grabs what comes in different packages in different locals but but much is the mood is widespread bread and I think the whole new literature that we see

the Sunbelt region to the south western states states in the California Amazon burbs that he a search will guarantee anti Republican dominance in presidential years for the balance at least for the balance of the century country in the controversial book the real majority X, and Ben White Bird review the same kind of data religion of the majority Center 00:09:50 Center really still belongs to the Democrats Seville just come to terms with what they call me call the social issue which is a catch all phrase for students for citizen concern about students and lawlessness and protest finally a bird Barry Goldwater waiting with his own exclamation in his new book the conscience of a majority and that are going really well stone and seems to me to the proposition that ran for the presidency just a few years too soon to top it all of me have Sanibel is exclamation the hidden crises American politics 00:10:25 the Bears involving majority out there somewhere what is not sure anyone can find it give it to shape or substance in his you that's the key component of the the crises he's worried about but however different the perceptions of these rays author authors all the degrees that we have this new set of alignments in a new city new set of evolutionary coalitions and I believe on the basis of what what I've seen in three states that we have a whole new set of constituency searching for idenity answers searching for spokesman and leaders themselves are trying to evolve 00:11:00 massage these constituencies draw from this data is the Nokia no Canada for party can take
