Conversations With...William Mayer (5:30)
Monday, October 26, 2020, 5:30 PM
Virtual. Registrants will receive the Zoom link prior to event date.
Northeastern's Professor William Mayer is a recognized expert on swing voters, a subject of obvious interest as national voting for president is underway and Election Day looms. What is a swing voter? Are swing voters identifiable demographically? How are they distributed among the major parties and third parties? How much, and under what conditions, have swings and swing voters mattered in past elections, especially presidential elections? In a hyperpartisan age, are there fewer swing voters, more, or the same as historically? Can we identify at least the broad likely bounds of their impacts in the 2020 elections, especially for Biden v. Trump?
This event is part of BHV’s Conversations With… series and will be held via Zoom. BHV members and their guests. Free.
