What will happen in the 2020 election? The political coalitions that make up both parties are rapidly realigning, with blue-collar workers gravitating to Republicans and upscale voters shifting to Democrats. Brad Todd provides analysis of the economic and societal trends that triggered today’s political realignment and are already driving the earthquakes to come in the consumer economy.
Brad Todd combines front-line political campaign experience with authentically rural, blue-collar roots to explain the fusion of conservative politics with populist sensibilities. Todd and his partners at OnMessage Inc. are the only agency in America to have defeated six Democratic incumbent Senators. With Senate and White House control on the line, and populists roiling industries and foreign nations alike, Todd connects America’s political turmoil to corporate positioning. A native of rural Appalachia, Todd uses plain-spoken aphorisms to explain complicated political and societal trends. The book he co-authored with journalist Salena Zito, The Great Revolt, is a Washington Post best-seller, and is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand what’s happening in American politics and what’s next.

Split Decision in the Making
Control of government is in the balance in 2020 and both parties are making risky bets. Democrats plan to woo upscale suburbanites who eschewed Trump in 2016. Republicans are banking on Trump’s status as an outsider to drive more infrequent voters to the polls. As the lead consultant to the Republicans’ House takeover efforts the last time Congress changed hands who has helped defeat six Democratic Senators, Brad Todd provides macro-analysis of trends and state-by-state prognosis based on 20 years of experience in high profile campaigns.

Brad’s presentation was highly informative as well as interesting and engaging. Brad ranks amongst the best speakers I have seen on any topic, but his presentation on the political landscape was truly superb.WABC-TV
I brought Brad Todd to speak to our group of energy CEOs and it was the one session of our conference that the attendees were still talking about weeks later. Brad’s analysis of the coming election and the country’s realignment was not only entertaining, it sparked a debate about how that realignment will effect our own businesses.
