The 2020 Democratic Nomination: Who Gets to Choose, the Parties or the Voters?
The Democrats have begun winnowing their original field of 20+ candidates down to the one who will eventually be their nominee for the 2020 presidential election. Jeffrey Bernstein will evaluate the candidates and assess their standings as we enter the 2020 election cycle. He’ll review the evolution of the nomination process and examine the transfer of power from the parties to the voters over the last half century. As he discusses our evolving system, he’ll focus on one big question: has the shift to a voter-centric process been a good thing for American politics? This lecture will coincide with the general time-frame of the New Hampshire primary and Iowa caucuses. Jeffrey Bernstein is an award-winning Professor of Political Science at Eastern Michigan University. His areas of interest are U.S. political parties, campaigns, and elections, voting behavior and public opinion, as well as the scholarship of teaching and learning. NOTE: NEW TIME!
