Tues, Aug 11 – 2020 Election Forecasts
August 11, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Can polling-obsessed Democrats survive another surprise like 2016? How does the art—and science—of election forecasting work? What lessons from 2016 can we apply to 2020? Who can we trust?
Dr. Rachel Bitecofer of the Niskanen Center rose to national prominence in 2018 with a relentlessly accurate forecast of district-by-district congressional race predictions, and now she’s bringing her predictive model to bear on the November election. She will share insights into her methodology, advise on what the at-home pundits get wrong, and set us up for a clear-eyed approach to the final months of this cycle. This program is co-organized by the WNDC GOTV Task Force.
