National Elections POL 405 - Shared screen with speaker view
Should we type it in the chat even if we sent them to you beforehand?
No just ones that come up while they're speaking!
Everyone looks beautiful today!
Do you think this will decrease success of down ballot third party candidates as well?
Will most senate elections this cycle be nationalized? In other words, will the success of Collins in Maine and others be directly contingent on the success of Trump?
Do you see the middle class blue collar vote remaining with Trump as it did in 2016 or do you believe Biden has the ability to swing that vote back towards the Democrats like Obama was able to do?
Great questions! I think Dr. White is going to come to chat questions after the ones emailed in :)
Trump uses a lot of divisive rhetoric where Biden has been focusing more on unification, do you see Trumps rhetoric as being more likely to bring in uncertain voters, or drive them to Biden?
Do you think that Biden’s decision to select Harris as his VP was meant in part to make his ticket appear harder on crime?
Do you think if Biden wins in 2020, will there be a 1994-style Republican wave in 2022?
Do you think Tim Scott, Nikki Halley will merge the thinking behind the Romney loss and capture the Trump inertia per say
in future elections
Do you believe that the landscape of political news will significantly change after Trump leaves office?
In such a polarized world, what kinds of steps does political wire take to remain non-partisan?
What will a Republican inside party war look like? Will republicans continue Reagan style conservatism or adapt a more “nationalist” style of politics brought forth by Trump?
How do you navigate around a widespread misinformation environment at Political Wire? Is there a vetting process to verify the articles that are included on the site, and what does that look like?
would you consider the 2020 Democratic Primary with Sanders and Biden similar to the 2000 Republican Primary with McCain and Bush
Do you think the younger generations being one of the largest voting groups this election will have a large impact on this election? (Will they show up to vote?) Who do you think is working with the age demographics better in this race and what is this strategy?
How do you combat the desensitization that occurs as a result of the excess of Trump coverage and content?
Did Jim Clyburn's endorsement propel Biden to victory in SC?
Do you think Kamal Harris being part African-American will help bring back some of the Obama African-Americans?
Do you have a theory why Elizabeth Warren did not drop out and endorse Sanders before Super Tuesday? Especially after so many (basically everyone else) dropped out and endorsed Biden? Do you think this was consequential at all on Super Tuesday for Sanders? in MA or TX?
Are identity politics the
**the "death" of American politics?
If Biden is elected, do you think it's more likely for his agenda to move more left or more toward the middle, as a result of this Biden coalition he's trying to form?
Do you believe Kamala Harris would have the same level of bi partisan ship
Is Biden being nominated and Harris as VP apart of a bigger plan for the party to obtain power?
A number of democrats who supported sanders want him or another socialist to be included in Biden’s government in an attempt to “unite” the party, that being the more “radical” sanders supporters and the more “moderate” Biden supporters, do you think he will do this or focus on reaching across party lines to the republicans?
American politics are totally polarized. What do you think it would take to break the cycle of voting exclusively along party lines, regardless of the issues at hand?
Could the progressive side of the Democratic party put Biden in trouble down the line?
Is Colorado Senator Micheal Bennet the best chance for Democrats in 2024?
Do you think that in states that have been hit harder by the pandemic, particularly swing states, voters are more or less likely to have the pandemic as a deciding factor when casting their votes?
What is the possibility of the House of Representatives deciding the election? I say this because I believe it is totally possible the Electoral College remains undecided after election.
What do you think could happen if Biden wins due to mail-in voting but Trump refuses to accept the result?
Could mail in voting benefit one party over another?
Trump is speaking in Kenosha about Police right now and has been putting lots of resources towards the state, while Biden has yet to step foot in Wisconsin. Do you think Trump still has a chance in Wisconsin with the unrest and riots?
Post 2020 Election Day, could this be the death of the 2 party system?
How possible is it that Doug Collins beats Kelly Loeffler in GA Senate special election?
Trump has been winning a lot with evangelical christians and pandering to them, do you think Biden being Catholic will pull some of these votes from Trump?
Should the Republicans return to the way they were in the 1970's (like Rockefeller or Gerry Ford Republicans) in order to stay "relevant"
Gemma del Carmen
Thank you so much!!!!
Thank you sir!
You mentioned that a lot of people don't like to talk to pollsters. How do you accommodate for this and ensure accurate results?
Have you been tracking the Marquette poll in Wisconsin? How accurate do you think the numbers have been thus far and do you think they will see a big change after the events in Kenosha?
Could the current crime levels along Biden's response about it cost him the election?
Do you believe that this year the presidential debates could hold more weight than in previous years?
Do you think people doing surprisingly well financially despite the pandemic is part of why many people still see trump as being better about the economy than Biden?
do you think that will change though due to the way Trump handled the pandemic? do you believe they are tied or separate in that way
How did the impeachment and the final vote effect congressional approval ratings
18-24 year olds voted in record numbers in the 2018 midterms. Do you think that enthusiasm would carry into the presidential election?
you have not met my father
In response to the low response rate, how do you imagine that polling methods will/should evolve?
Could polling potentially die out? Historically, polls did not have the same prominence as they do now, and since 2016 is flawed, would it make people even more distrustful of them?
Do you think someones approval (or disapproval) of their local congresspeople and senators affects their likelihood to vote for a presidential candidate of the same party?
Are polls too nationalized?
Do you think feelings of frustration and even defeat because of the pandemic has contributed to the decline in voter enthusiasm?
In your opinion, what are the chances of a high turnout being impeded by the circumstances of the coronavirus?
How much do you think Trump’s efforts to make mail voting as hard as possible will succeed in significantly decreasing the number of people who vote by mail?
Kanye West has gotten a lot of press due to his announcement that he is running as a third-party candidate. He seems to think it is a legitimate campaign and even some members of the GOP have been supporting him. Do you think he has the possibility to pull a significant number of votes away from either major party?
I was looking at this earlier
Given the tones struck by speakers like Donald Trump JR + Guilfoyle, do you think Melania Trump’s speech was more the tone that the GOP should be utilizing? Do you think that’s the tone that will reel in undecided voters?
Biden for a long time said he would never run for president, do you think this will affect undecided voters who wonder why he changed his mind?
What issue do you think mistrust of China will play this year?
Do you think the polarization of the presidential race will decrease success of down ballot third party candidates?
Do you think there is a parallel between the McCain 2000s primary and Sanders 2020 primary run with the shift in SC
Do you think the day the two party system dies is upon us? Did anyone say Multiparty system???
multiparty system can’t be successful without major campaign finance reform, if successful at all tbh
