Wallin to Speak at USC: Technocracy – Examining Tech’s Role in the Polarization of US Politics

Justin Wallin will speak Tuesday evening at an event hosted by USC’s Unruh Institute of Politics.

Waiting isn’t a strategy. Successful campaigns build a cohesive and consistent narrative that targets a winning coalition of voters from the moment they announce. And they keep up that sustained appeal until the polls close.
