Early polling shows Donald Trump could lose the popular election in 2020 by more than 5 million votes, and yet once again win the Electoral College. Democrats have made major changes to the process for selecting their nominee. Our discussions this fall will focus on national election processes and politics and on the role of Wisconsin. Who is Trump’s base in Wisconsin and how much of that is linked to citizens who feel they are out of touch because of lack of broadband, interstate access and other community, education and business resources? What is the likely impact of Wisconsin on his Democratic opponent? This session will include experts on 5G, Wisconsin’s economy, challenges to rural voters, polling, UW educational policies, media coverage, and political processes.
