Presentation by Burdett Loomis KU Professor of Political Science
Five weeks from today we’ll know if American voters have rewarded Barack Obama with a second term or have decided to move in a decidedly different direction with Mitt Romney. Although we’ll certainly talk about the horse race aspect of the campaign, we might want to step back and ask what the election tells us about the current state of U.S. politics.
