Election Prognostication: A Webinar on the State of the 2016 Presidential Election

Webinar

You’ve heard from the candidates, the coalitions have been assembled, and voting begins in Iowa and New Hampshire in just a few days…but how will these wild primaries ultimately shake out to decide the Republican and Democratic nominees? Will the Republicans be able to avoid a brokered convention in Cleveland or will real estate mogul Donald Trump sweep the field? And will Hillary Clinton be able to beat back a challenge from self-avowed socialist Bernie Sanders on her way to becoming the first female presidential nominee?

Hear veteran political analyst Jim Ellis discuss his predictions on the upcoming presidential primaries, including what to expect as voters decide in Iowa and New Hampshire and what to watch as the campaigns branch out past the traditional first states. He also will touch on the upcoming battle for the Senate and what this will mean for the new president and the start of the 115th Congress in 2017.
