Taking Stock of the 2020 Election: How Gender, Race, and Ethnicity Will Shape the Presidential Race
A Panel Discussion featuring Drs. Melissa Deckman, Flavio Hickel and Eric L. McDaniel
The 2016 Presidential Election was decided by fewer than 80,000 votes in three critical states: Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. Many analysts believe that crucial to that outcome was a lack of turnout by minority voters-and the surprising fact that a majority of white women voters backed Donald Trump. This talk looks ahead to the Presidential election in November, with a special emphasis on how race, ethnicity and gender may shape the outcome this fall.
