Eberly Hall, Room 110

Just one week after American voters make their choice, a popular team of political experts returns to Cal U to examine the reasons behind the results and look ahead.

Political analyst Jon Delano, money and politics editor at KDKA-TV, will be the moderator for the 2016 Election Analysis Forum.

The program is free and open to the public.

Panelists are:

  • Alan Abramowitz, professor of political science at Emory University, Va.
  • William C. Binning, chair emeritus of the Department of Political Science at Youngstown State University, Ohio.
  • Louis Jacobson, deputy editor/senior writer for the Pulitzer Prize-winning PolitiFact.com website, a contributing columnist and elections handicapper for PoliticsPA, a state politics columnist for Governing, and senior author of The Almanac of American Politics 2016.
  • Costas Panagopoulos, director of the Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy and the graduate program in Elections and Campaign Management at Fordham University, N.Y.

Why it matters

“We are so fortunate to have these national experts return to dissect the results, answer insightful questions and tell us what they mean just one week after the election,” says Dr. Melanie Blumberg, a professor in Cal U’s Department of History, Politics and Society and campus director of the American Democracy Project.

“The decisions made by elected officials affect a broad spectrum of issues, ranging from student loan guarantees to health care coverage.”

Event sponsors

Presenting the Nov. 15 event are the campus chapter of the American Democracy Project, the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost/Academic Affairs, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Department of History, Politics and Society.
