American Politics After the Mid-Terms: A Panel Discussion   

Online Class: A Zoom invitation link will be sent one day before class begins.

By the time we meet for this panel discussion, the November 2022 mid-term elections will have occurred. If past patterns and this year’s polling hold true, the Republicans are headed for strong results. In this presentation, our panel will describe and analyze partisan and demographic election returns for the United States Senate and House, and for major gubernatorial posts including the Wolverine state. Join us as panel members offer their usual bold (and occasionally correct) predictions on the fate of President Biden, and the Democrats’ fragile policy agenda. Finally, panel members will discuss what recent elections suggest about looming 2024 presidential contests in each party.
