Marc Meredith Matthew Levendusky Daniel Gillion Michele MargolisAssociate Professor of Political ScienceThe Presidential Race: What Do Iowa and New Hampshire Tell Us? Irvine Auditorium, Amado Recital Hall

After months of campaigning, the first voting will take place at the Iowa caucus on February 1, and the first primary election in the nation will be held in New Hampshire on February 9— the day before this talk. What can these early and limited results tell us about what the electorate is thinking and what might come next? A panel of professors from the Department of Political Science will discuss this and answer questions.
