Speech Topics

Hispanics Will Be a Decisive Factor in the 2016 Election, and May Very Well Decide Them for the Next 50 Years

Patti Solis Doyle explains how Hispanics have emerged as powers in politics over the last 25 years—and how their influence on policy and candidates is more complicated than most experts believe. Using examples from her work in the White House and on eight of the most important campaigns of the past 25 years, Patti examines the demographic trends, voter participation, economic power and political ideology behind America’s fastest-growing voting block.

State of the 2016 Race: Demographics, Party Platforms, Candidate Momentum and Dirty Tricks

Patti Solis Doyle draws on 25 years of campaign experience, including races for Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Joe Biden, to help audiences look past the day’s headlines and appreciate the demographic, economic and technological trends driving the 2016 race, including how each candidate must navigate moving from the primary to the general election.

Can a Woman Be Elected President of the United States?

Patti Solis Doyle explains how women have emerged as powers in politics over the last 25 years—and why a woman can, and should, win in 2016. Women have risen as candidates, political staffers and as constituents. Patti covers where progress has been made, how it happened and who deserves the credit. Using examples from her work in the White House and on eight of the most important campaigns of the past 25 years, Patti demonstrates how “women’s issues,” like family leave, grew from topics candidates’ wives were supposed to talk about to among the most important levers politicians have to address today’s income inequality and economic anxiety. She makes similar points about “soft power” foreign policy, tracing Hillary Clinton’s work as first lady, into the post 9-11 diplomacy she practiced in the Senate and at the State Department.
