Recorded on November 15, this “post-mortem” panel featured a group of scholars—experts on Congress, public opinion, and voting behavior—discussing the outcomes of the 2018 midterm elections. The panelists provided an account of the factors that led to the results, and they offered competing perspectives on the implications of the elections for governance in the upcoming years, and for the shape of the 2020 presidential and congressional elections. Panelists included:
, Resident Scholar, Institute of Governmental Studies, University of California, Berkeley and Senior Fellow in Governance Studies at The Brookings Institution
, Virginia Hobbs Carpenter Fellow in Journalism at Hoover Institution
, Professor of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley (moderator)
This presentation was sponsored by Social Science Matrix in partnership with the Jack Citrin Center for Public Opinion Research; Public Law and Policy @Berkeley Law; and the Institute for the Study of Societal Issues.
