We explore the impact of Obama’s winning on possible changes in participation, civic activity, feelings of political alienation and trust, and racial and gender attitudes and interactions. Studying these questions over time with a nationally representative panel of respondents provides us with the unique opportunity to explore if and how this political moment might be used to expand individuals’ civic and political attitudes and behavior.
