Proposition 18—Should Seventeen-Year-Olds Be Allowed To Vote?

by David Davenportvia Eureka
Tuesday, October 27, 2020

California’s Proposition 18 on this year’s ballot is like those television commercials that may be clever but where, in the end, you fail to see the point or even remember the product being advertised. It would amend the California constitution to allow seventeen-year-olds who would turn eighteen by the time of the next general election to vote in primaries or special elections.

interview with Morris P. Fiorinavia Reason
Wednesday, October 28, 2020

Hoover Institution fellow Morris Fiorina says we are in an extended age of "unstable majorities" because neither the Republican Party nor the Democratic Party is popular enough to get and hold enduring legislative power. The result is a historically rare period in which control of the White House and each house of Congress regularly flips back and forth between the two parties.

How COVID Could Become A Vulnerability For Biden In The Campaign’s Home Stretch

quoting Niall Fergusonvia Yahoo News
Wednesday, October 28, 2020

Opinions vary significantly over what will happen in Tuesday’s election, and the surprise of 2016 is a big reason why. In normal circumstances, the relative stability of the polls and the race’s trajectory might make this election easier to predict. Yet while most looking at the polls and betting odds would probably rather be Biden than Trump in this final week of the campaign, there is plenty of reason to at least maintain some humility, regardless of which side you believe will prevail.

quoting David Davenportvia Utah Policy
Wednesday, October 28, 2020

The Hatch Center-the policy arm of the Orrin G. Hatch Foundation has released Commonsense Solutions to Our Civics Crisis, a nonpartisan report that establishes strong links between poor civic education and a number of ills plaguing our democracy, including depressed voter turnout, low trust in institutions, and decreasing faith in the free market. To reverse these trends, the report calls on policymakers across all levels of government to devote increased state and federal resources to address the civics crisis. In doing so, it outlines a policy blueprint to recenter civics at the heart of America’s public-school system.

Jonathan Meer, an economics professor and first-rate economic researcher at Texas A&M University, shared with me an op/ed on the minimum wage that he wrote recently. It was rejected by a few publications, although I think, as you’ll see, the rejection had nothing to do with the quality of the piece. So he and I have agreed that I’ll run it here as a guest blog post.
