The Al­man­ac of Amer­ic­an Polit­ics is the es­sen­tial re­source for any­one look­ing to un­der­stand the trends driv­ing our shift­ing polit­ic­al land­scape,” said Mr. Hart­man. “At Na­tion­al Journ­al, we are proud to con­tin­ue the tra­di­tion of provid­ing our read­ers and mem­bers with the tools that en­able them to nav­ig­ate this com­plex and dy­nam­ic land­scape.”

Co­hen and his team will provide in-depth over­views of each state and house dis­trict, along with demo­graph­ic data, ana­lys­is of vot­ing trends, and polit­ic­al his­tor­ies,with new cat­egor­ies on eco­nom­ic, oc­cu­pa­tion­al, so­cial, geo­graph­ic, and cam­paign fin­ance data.

“The 2016 edi­tion of The Al­man­ac of Amer­ic­an Polit­ics will be filled with fresh de­tails and in­sights on the people and events that shaped the his­tor­ic out­comes of the 2014 midterm elec­tions, plus what lies ahead for the next two years — in both policy and polit­ics,” said Co­hen. “The icon­ic book will fea­ture ex­tens­ive cam­paign-fin­ance data, and new demo­graph­ic and elec­tion de­tails on all 50 states and 435 House dis­tricts, which will be a vi­tal com­pan­ion for read­ers dur­ing the 2016 elec­tion cycle.”

The Al­man­ac of Amer­ic­an Polit­ics has been the gold stand­ard of polit­ic­al in­sight, and frankly in­spires some rev­er­ence and af­fec­tion. We are ex­cited not just to be part of the pro­cess, but by the op­por­tun­ity to work with Na­tion­al Journ­al as well as the many skilled ana­lysts who have been so help­ful in mak­ing sure this valu­able re­source con­tin­ues to be avail­able,” stated Joel Pozn­ansky, CEO, Columbia Books & In­form­a­tion Ser­vices.

Since 1972,The Al­man­ac has de­tailed the coun­try’s chan­ging polit­ic­al land­scape through each elec­tion cycle, shed­ding light on the lead­ers run­ning the coun­try and the demo­graph­ics of the people who voted them in.

"Two weeks before his inauguration, Donald J. Trump was shown highly classified intelligence indicating that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had personally ordered complex cyberattacks to sway the 2016 American election. The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers and information gleaned from a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin, who had described to the C.I.A. how the Kremlin decided to execute its campaign of hacking and disinformation. Mr. Trump sounded grudgingly convinced, according to several people who attended the intelligence briefing. But ever since, Mr. Trump has tried to cloud the very clear findings that he received on Jan. 6, 2017, which his own intelligence leaders have unanimously endorsed."
