David McLennan, Ph.D., professor of political science at Meredith College, will present, “Red Wave or Blue Resurgence: Fundamental Dynamics Affecting the 2033 Midterm Elections,” Thursday, October 13 at 1:30 pm in The Gathering Place.
Dr. McLennan describes his talk as follows: “Historically, midterm elections hurt the political party that controls the White House. Many experts forecast Democrats to easily lose control over Congress. However, little in the last six years has been predictable. With the uncertainties of COVID, the economy, and the war in Europe looming large as the 2022 midterms approach, I will examine the major factors shaping control of Congress in 2023. In addition, I will offer my forecast of what is likely to happen and what this means for the country going forward.”
Given Covid’s resurgence, we ask that all attendees be vaccinated and boosted and wear a mask. Thank you.
