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

While much of what happened during the race was unprecedented, at least as much unfolded as we would have expected. This talk reviews the ways in which the 2016 election challenged what we thought we knew about elections, reinforced what we do know, and what that all means for the 2018 and 2020 elections.
