KQED World: Tue, Jan 17, 2017 -- 7:00 AM

Three episodes from the Postcards from the Great Divide series examine the partisan split among the electorate in Washington, Nevada and Wisconsin. In PURPLE REIGN by Laura Nix, we follow a GOP strategist in the supposedly left-leaning state of Washington, as he works with socially moderate candidates, including a Latino former marine, to win swing districts and change the statehouse balance of power. SWINGING NEVADA by Laura Pacheco and Jackie Mow looks at Nevada, once solidly Republican. But things have changed as more Latinos have moved in. So what's the GOP strategy to win a changing purple state? WHATEVER HAPPENED TO WISCONSIN NICE? by Brad Lichtenstein, explores how the Badger State has become an ideological battleground in recent years and what to expect for the state's political future.

3 episodes from the Postcards from the Great Divide series examine the partisan split among the electorate in Minnesota, Texas & Florida. The Big Sort - There's a political self-sorting process that is happening across America. Blue voters are choosing to live in "creative-class" urban oases, as red voters remain in rural areas. Minnesota native Aaron Spading, conservative church-goer turned far-left Powderhorn Park resident, guides us as we explore one of those blue-dots-in-a-sea-of-red. Meetings with family and old neighbors illustrate just how deep the political gulf between people can be, but the film ends on a hopeful note; where there is dialogue, there can still be community. Post-Obama Drama - In 2008 and 2012 African-Americans in Florida turned out in record numbers for Barack Obama even when voting hours and registration rules were tightened. What are the challenges among the black electorate that the Democratic candidate in 2016 will face in this must-win state? To find out, we visit a number of African-Americans in the city, from a black chamber of commerce meeting, to a picnic of friends, and ending at a lively black heritage celebration. The Giant Still Sleeps - Pundits seem convinced that a purple Texas is just around the corner due to its burgeoning Latino population, yet the state gets redder and redder. One factor is that Latino turnout remains low. Our study case is Pasadena, a city just outside the limits of Houston, where Oscar Del Toro is registering and motivating potential voters as he plans his own city council race.
