Super (Tuesday): Power Politics

The race to become the Democratic challenger to take on Donald Trump for the US presidency has been underway for over a year, with the formal primary process finally underway. 

On the eve of Super Tuesday, which will see 14 US states vote on who should be the democratic nominee, come and gain insight and understanding from Kingston University experts as we discuss Super Tuesday, how the race to replace Trump has evolved, how to 'read' polling of US politics, who the democratic nominee might be and whether Trump will be unseated. 

Panel members will get around 8-10 minutes to speak to their take on things (drawing on their own specialisms and positions, see below). In the second half, there will be a Q&A, followed by snacks and refreshments.

The following themes will be covered:
  • Where we are and how we got here 
  • Polling
  • Nationalism, identity and the Democratic Party

Participants

  • Chair: Professor Evanthia Lyons (Head of School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences)
  • Dr. Pete Finn (Senior Lecturer, Department of Politics, International Relations and Human Rights)
  • Dr. Ronald Ranta (Senior Lecturer, Department of Politics, International Relations and Human Rights)
