Can Trump Win Again? LifeLong

Donald Trump’s 2016 victory could be repeated in 2020. This non-partisan and participatory class will look at many factors that may influence the outcome next year – the electoral college, swing counties and states, the candidates, information and media, Fox News, the internet, polls, immigration and «the wall,» race, economics, cultural conflict and resentments, education, social issues, guns, health, voter turnout, foreign interference, attitudes towards government, and the roles of women, elites, the white working class, and rural and suburban voters. The focus also will be on the potential impact of the Mueller report, Congressional actions, and claims of «fake news», «witch hunts», «cover up», and «no collusion».
