Mr. Greenberg talked about his recent book, Middle Class Dreams, published by Times Books. It focuses on how “middle class” Americans have become alienated from the current political system and how they can influence the next election. He believes that this new majority has changed the two party dynamic, the Republicans being pro-business and the Democrats being pro-"little guy," which he dates back to the election of 1896.
