Doug Schoen• Democratic Strategist / Fox News Analyst
• Best-selling Author
• Pollster.


Political analyst, pollster, and author Doug Schoen’s new book, Putin’s Master Plan exposes Putin’s unified strategy and vision for Europe and reveals how American foreign policy blunders are emboldening Russia. Schoen’s book, Return to Winter: Russia, China, and the New Cold War Against America is about how the U.S. is a nation in crisis. While Washington has been rendered nearly impotent by ongoing partisan warfare, we face an array of national security threats that America seems increasingly unprepared, and perhaps unwilling, to handle. Among these, none is more formidable than the unprecedented partnership developing between Russia and China, two former foes drawn increasingly close together because of a confluence of geostrategic, political, and economic interests – all of which have a common theme of diminishing, subverting, or displacing American power.
