Election 2020: Is American Democracy at Risk?

Join A&S political scientists Emily Bacchus, Stephen Voss, Michael Zilis, and Clayton Thyne, chair of the Political Science Department, as they discuss hot topics in the upcoming 2020 election, including: What are the electoral implications for the Supreme Court? Will the Senate flip? Will the question of a legitimate election cause unprecedented chaos? How are political protests playing a part? These questions and many more will be addressed as we look at the rise of contentious and sometimes violent street politics, a partisan battle over the judiciary, and a variety of longstanding legislative norms collapsing in the face of ideological polarization.
