On November 4, Americans will set the stage for the final two years of President Obama’s presidency and will unofficially kick off the 2016 presidential election. Our panelists Whit Ayres, Mark Mellman, and Amy Walter, and moderator John Fortier have decades of experience analyzing campaigns and elections and shared their unique insight.
BPC hosted a discussion about likely winners and losers in this year’s election and what the outcome means for political polarization in this country. We also looked at what the polling and potential results tell us about how polarized the electorate is and how polarized the next Congress will be. Whit Ayres and Mark Mellman also worked with BPC’s Commission on Political Reform on four national public opinion polls in 2013 and 2014 covering polarization, public service, electoral reform, and Congress.
