As voters we are inundated with information from all sides: Debates, Campaign Ads, PAC Ads, Yard Signs, Door-to-Door Pollsters…Hype, Pundits, and Posturing. Yet how to navigate the clamor can often be the most frustrating part of a political race.

Elvin T. Lim,Associate Professor of Government at Wesleyan University, will examine the campaigns and offer insight into those questions and issues at the heart of “The Race to the Presidency” –

  • What issues appear to have had the most influence on voter polls?

  • What campaign strategies appear to have had the most influence?

  • What has caused the campaigns to change directions, change focus, or just change?


Wednesday, October 24th will mark the final lap to the voter’s booth. We invite you to join us as Professor Lim considers the issues which have led the campaign field and the surprises which may lie between the candidates andNovember 6th.
