This event is co-sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School and the School’s Center for the Study of Democratic Politics.

During the panel, “Election 2016 Debrief: What Happened?! What’s Next?,” speakers will reflect on the U.S. presidential campaign — from polling to the candidates’ strategies — and provide analysis of the results.

Panelists will answer three questions from their own areas of expertise: How did we get here? What did we learn? And what’s next? They are experts in such fields as campaigns and elections, political polarization, foreign affairs, race and ethnic politics, among others.

Panelists include:

  • Samuel L. Popkin, professor, emeritus, University of California San Diego; author of “The Candidate: What it Takes to Win (and Hold) the White House” (2012) and "The Republican Crackup and the Future of Presidential Politics" (forthcoming 2017) 
  • Nolan McCarty, Susan Dod Brown Professor of Politics and Public Affairs, chair, Department of Politics, Princeton University; author of “Political Bubbles: Financial Crises and the Failure of American Democracy”
  • Deborah Amos, international correspondent, NPR
  • Ali Valenzuela, assistant professor of politics, Princeton University

The discussion will be moderated by Brandice Canes-Wrone, director, Center for the Study of Democratic Politics; Donald E. Stokes Professor of Public and International Affairs and vice dean, Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University.
