IQ2US: Are identity politics a way to win?


The public and pundits alike are still processing the most recent election, but this much we know: 2020 marks the most diverse Congress in American history, and President Trump garnered more minority voters in 2020 than in 2016. As Georgia faces two runoff elections, which will determine which party controls the Senate, gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams and other voting-rights advocates have focused on identity politics as a way to prevail in the electoral process. Is it a winning strategy? Two experts on race and identity in America sit with "Intelligence Squared" host and moderator John Donvan to debate.

Each episode of "Intelligence Squared U.S." presents a debate that aims to enlighten, entertain and inform. Listen Sunday, January 3 at 7 p.m. on WRVO, on-air and online.
