Politics & Polls #48: Wake Up to Politics with Gabe Fleisher
One of the ongoing challenges in American politics is appealing to younger demographics – not simply through elections and voter turn-out but engaging young people with the political process. Today’s young people – and even some adults – find politics difficult to digest and unappealing, presenting challenges in the ways that Americans learn, interpret and analyze politics.
Gabe Fleisher, a 15-year-old student in St. Louis, is looking to change that with his newsletter “Wake Up to Politics,” which is sent to 36,000 readers every morning. Our youngest guest to date, Fleisher discusses his newsletter and how to make politics appealing in this episode of Politics & Polls. Podcast here.
