This course will take a deep dive into the forces and factors that are shaping the 2020 presidential election. Historical, economic, social, demographic, and geopolitical trends will be offered to provide context to the coming election. We will examine the Trump presidency and the Democratic presidential candidates as well as the dynamics shaping both major political parties.
The objective of this course is to dispassionately inform and not to persuade. Lecture and discussion is designed to clarify and not debate. Analysis will be provided for the purposes of educating participants as to what to look for, as America heads towards what may be a most consequential presidential election.
