The midterm elections have been labeled as the year of identity politics. Candidates across parties are employing their race, class, gender, sexuality as points as to how they will alter policies and change the status quo at state and federal levels. Voters have been rallied to identify with politicians for what they represent as well as their policies. Much has been written already about the utility of identity politics and what they offer politicians and voters. This conversation will be devoted to discussing the pros and problems of identity politics.
