Description:

This paper looks at the role of sociology in the recent presidential election. Specifically, two appropriate articles are drawn from newspaper coverage of the election to show how social class stratification played a key role in the election results. Particularly, the paper discusses how these articles reveal that Mr. Obama's ascension to the White House was complicated by virtue of the fact that working-class whites did not connect with him or with his redistributionist policies as some might have expected. Overall, the paper shows how a critic could charge that this sizable glut of voters exhibited a classic "false consciousness" during the election cycle that prevented Obama from winning a crushing mandate.
