"Election 2012: Who Will Win and How Will They Govern?"

How are the 2012 presidential and congressional elections unfolding? How do we interpret public opinion polls and shifts in momentum that occur during the run-up to Election Day? Why is the Missouri race between Claire McCaskill and her Republican challenger so important? Please join Professor Russ Hanson, Chair of Political Science, as he examines the current electoral cycle: from how political scientists forecast Presidential, Senate and U.S. House contests to the types of policies each party will try to enact once votes are counted and the winners are determined. We invite you to participate in this timely discussion about the present and future state of American politics.
