“Red Wave? Blue Wave? Forecasting the Midterm Election”

Politics and International Affairs Professor Danielle Vinson has been a member of the Furman faculty since 1995.

The midterm election is barely a week away, and still nobody seems certain about what is going to happen on Nov. 6.

But Furman Politics and International Affairs Professor Danielle Vinson will do her best to make sense of it all when she speaks at the High Noon fall lecture series Wednesday, October 31.

The fall High Noon series takes place at the Upcountry History Museum-Furman.

Her talk, “Red Wave? Blue Wave? Forecasting the Midterm Election,” begins at noon at the Upcountry History Museum-Furman University. It is free and open to the public.

Vinson’s talk is the third of four lectures in the fall series. Politics and International Affairs Professor Jim Guth will close the series on Nov. 7 with a look at who won and who lost in the midterms.

Some pundits are expecting major Democratic gains, especially in the House, while President Trump is working to create a strong Republican turnout at the polls. Dr. Vinson will look at what political science tells us we should expect in the midterm Congressional elections and why we might or might not want to believe it.

All lectures begin at noon and last one hour.  The Upcountry History Museum/Furman is located at 540 Buncombe Street in downtown Greenville’s Heritage Green area. The complete fall schedule is available here.
