|9:00 am-12:00 pm||Chautauqua - Term 8: "The 2012 Presidential Election and the Political Science of Elections" The Commons|
Presented by David Yamanishi, associate professor of politics. This Chautauqua will address the 2012 presidential election and American elections generally. The group will ask fundamental questions such as why third parties have been electorally unsuccessful in America, whether gerrymandering and primaries have made the parties more extreme, and how political polling works. The class will then look at how political scientists look at the 2012 election: how they try to predict the outcome; whether the Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya (and other?) conflicts are likely to affect the election; whether the election is likely to make a dramatic difference in economic and foreign policy. This course continues April 23 and 30. Cost of the four-week program is $30.
