THE SAGUARO SEMINAR: CIVIC ENGAGEMENT IN AMERICA is an ongoing initiative of Professor Robert D. Putnam at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. The project focuses on expanding what we know about our levels of trust and community engagement and on developing strategies and efforts to increase this engagement. A signature effort was the multi-year dialogue (1995-2000) on how we can increasingly build bonds of civic trust among Americans and their communities. We are currently in the midst of longer-term research projects on the inter-relation of workplace policies and practices on social capital on- and off-the-job, on the relationship between social capital, diversity and equality, and on religion and public life.

    How ridiculous is the study that you did on the Tea Party. Anybody can take a sampling with vague questions on any group in America and construe it in a way that is negative. David Campbells’ interview with Chris Matthews about the book was absolutely was a farce.
    Notre Dame being the esteemed religious institution it is should be ashamed for having a race baiter and a religion basher on their staff as this guy.
    I am NOT a tea party’re but a registered Independent. Crap like this has nothing to do with politics and only divides our great country more for the sake of arousing the “base” and to sell books to liberals.
    Mr. Campbell fortunately for the country, your construing won’t have an effect and you are the one that is way out of the mainstream.

    I have read with great interest you comments about the t-Party. I would be interested in the survey you conducted and the results of that survey. Please respond.

    I saw Mr. Campbell on C-SPAN and he made the (unjustified, in my opinion) assertion that since “nones” tended to be liberal that they are moving away from religion due to political reasons. I offer this article in response to this assertion: In other words, liberals tend to value science more, and so it could be this, acceptance of science that is driving the “nones” away from religion. Campbell’s thinking in this case makes me wonder about the accuracy of other claims in the book.
