KC Dem Club on-line: Dr. Markie McBrayer, UI Professor, Post-Election Analysis

This Friday at noon we move the conversation about the November 3rd General Election to the evaluation stage. This post-election analysis will be a look beyond who won or lost. More accurately, it will attempt to reveal some of the underlying voting trends taking place at the national, state, and county level. To help breakdown what happened, we have enlisted the help of Dr. Markie McBrayer. Dr. McBrayer is an assistant professor of political science. Considering her experience, she will be a great resource for breaking down the data that explains how this consequential election unfolded. More importantly, she can help us to understand how different demographic groups determined the outcomes.

Join Dr. Markie McBrayer this Friday, at noon, for an online discussion about the most consequential election of our lifetimes and what it may predict about future voting trends.

The link to this online discussion will be emailed on Thursday 11/19. If you need assistance, contact Phil at pjwmia@aol.com.
