FEBRUARY ANN ARBOR ASA CHAPTER MEETING
At the February Ann Arbor Chapter ASA meeting, there will be a presentation by Walter Hill, Ph.D., Professor of Political Science, Coordinator, African and African Diaspora Studies, St, Mary's College of Maryland on:
The election of 2016: Do we know why Trump won?
Many observers were surprised to see Donald Trump win the presidency in November. The bulk of the forecasts were based on public opinion polls. I will review polls and some other models of elections. I will identify at least some of the features the forecasts missed.
