The 2016 Presidential Campaign: Do We Have to Admit It's Getting Better?

Date: Thursday, October 27
Time: Noon
Location: H. Dutcher Community Room

The 2016 presidential campaign has often highlighted the worst of contemporary American politics. The past several months have featured candidates who oscillate between over-heated public rhetoric and hushed solicitations of contributions from well-heeled individuals and interests; an electorate that has been at times enraged, at others confused, and at still others indifferent; and a news media that covets chaos so much that it will create it if necessary. Is there any reason to think that the 2016 campaign portends anything other than continued partisan polarization and systemic dysfunction? Join Skidmore Professor Ron Seyb for a talk that draws on political science research to address this question. No registration required.
