Lessons from the 2016 Election: What We Got Right, What We Got Wrong, and What It Means for 2018 and Beyond

Lessons from the 2016 Election: What We Got Right, What We Got Wrong, and What It Means for 2018 and Beyond

Stephen Medvic

The Honorable & Mrs. John C. Kunkel Professor of Government, Franklin & Marshall College
