Bernstein Debates: Post Election Analysis: Can Humpty-Dumpty Be Put Back Together Again?

November 10, 2016
6:00 - 7:30 p.m.


Uris Hall, Faculty Lounge, 3rd floor, Columbia Business School

Event Type: 

For our sixth Bernstein Debates event, Bob ShapiroHoward RosenthalAndrew Gelman and David Park will discuss the U.S election results and its implications for the future. Despite the intense public scrutiny via the media's powerful lens, there is a sense of puzzlement in how to interpret the patterns in the forecasted vote in the context of larger questions of what has happened to the right and what might be the future of the party system.  We will explore this topic by discussing the ideological positioning of the candidates in reference to the vote and the demographic fault lines revealed during this campaign season.
