BALL will be presenting a FREE Special Lecture as a Zoom on-line webinar, on Thursday Sept. 10th, 2020, 10:00 am to noon. Dr. Michael Johns will speak on "A Presidential Election Unlike Anything We Have Seen Before". You may remember Dr. Johns from his Oct. 10, 2019 BALL lecture, "Donald Trump and the New Disorder of American Politics".
This presentation will examine what a presidential election during a pandemic may look like. It will discuss the campaign strategies of both parties and examine their strengths and weaknesses. The presentation will also briefly explain the Electoral College and examine which states will be most important to watch on election night. The talk will conclude with a discussion of the down ballot races and who may control the Senate and therefore the Supreme Court.
