This week, David Wasserman on the U.S. Census, Redistricting, and Rethinking Demographic and Political Trends is the topic of Wednesdays with Woodward by the Travelers Institute, sponsored by MetroHartford Alliance, and the American Property Casualty Insurance Association.
Wednesday, September 8, 2021 | 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Calling all political nerds and data junkies! What do changing demographics, the 2020 U.S. Census, and the redrawing of congressional districts mean for the next election? Join us as we kick off our fall programming season with David Wasserman, one of the country’s top political forecasters and Senior Election Analyst of The Cook Political Report. In 2016, Wasserman was one of the few analysts to predict a Trump victory, writing two months before the election that Trump could win the White House while losing the popular vote. His granular knowledge of the country’s congressional districts and his “scrupulously non-partisan” analysis of this data make him one of the most sought-after analysts on election night. And on September 8, he’ll talk with Travelers Institute President Joan Woodward and take your questions. Join us for an in-depth discussion with Wasserman about what redistricting efforts across the country may mean for future U.S. election outcomes, his “retail theory” of American politics, and what the 2020 Census results have revealed about demographic trends.
