Even as researchers continue to collect and analyze data from November’s elections, voting patterns offer valuable insights and lessons at all levels of government and for the current state of our democracy. ISPS Director Alan Gerber will moderate a panel focused on understanding what political behavior reveals and why it’s important.

The panelists will be:

• Morris P. Fiorina, Wendt Family Professor in Political Science at Stanford University and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution

• Joshua Kalla, Assistant Professor of Political Science, Assistant Professor of Statistics and Data Science, and resident faculty fellow with ISPS

• Michael Podhorzer, AFL-CIO Assistant to the President for Strategic Research, recognized as an early leader in data-driven politics in the book, “The Victory Lab”
