Michael P. Balzano is the author of Building a New Majority, published in February 2016, which provides candidates and the public the tools to better understand the complexities of the American workforce. The narrative follows the author, the son of working-class Italian immigrants, from his boyhood in New Haven, Connecticut, through his time as a high-school dropout and garbage collector to his return to school, where he earned a doctoral degree at Georgetown University.
His story attracted the attention of the Nixon White House. He was brought on board to communicate with ethnic and working-class voters as part of Nixon’s strategy to reach out to Roosevelt Democrats. Balzano performed this same function for President Ronald Reagan’s 1980 and 1984 campaigns and in President George H. W. Bush’s 1988 campaign.
