2012 Election Analysis Forum
Start Date: 11/13/2012Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 11/13/2012End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description:
Just one week after American voters choose their next president, a popular team of political experts will return to Cal U to examine the reasons behind the results.

Political commentator Jon Delano, of KDKA-TV, will serve as moderator for the 2012 Election Analysis Forum, a free event at 7 p.m. Nov. 13 in Eberly Hall, Room 110, on the Cal U campus.

Presented by the American Democracy Project at Cal U, the program is open to the public. Panelists are:

- William C. Binning, chair emeritus of the Department of Political Science at Youngstown State University, Ohio.

- Louis Jacobson, staff writer for the Pulitzer Prize-winning PolitiFact.com website, a contributing writer for PoliticsPA and Governing, and a contributing editor at National Journal magazine.

- Costas Panagopoulos, director of the Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy and the graduate program in Elections and Campaign Management at Fordham University, New York.

- Daniel Shea, director of the Center for the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement at Colby College, Maine.

Delano and the panelists shared their predictions in March during Cal U's 2012 Election Outlook event.

"It will be fascinating to learn whether their predictions hold true -- especially after such a close and polarizing campaign," said Dr. Melanie Blumberg, a professor in Cal U's Department of History and Political Science.

"This is an excellent opportunity to hear national experts discuss the presidential and congressional election outcomes," she added. "Jon Delano's insightful questions, combined with the panelists' quick wit and broad-based expertise, always leave the audience feeling they've been both informed and entertained."

American Democracy Project

The forum is sponsored by the American Democracy Project, a multi-campus initiative focused on higher education's role in preparing the next generation of informed, engaged citizens. In addition to the 2012 Election Analysis, the ADP sponsored a series of Debate Watch events during the presidential campaign season.

As ADP campus director, Blumberg organized the 2012 Election Analysis Forum in coordination with Cal Campaign Consultants, a student organization that focuses on the art of campaigning. Co-sponsors are the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost/Academic Affairs, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Department of History and Political Science.

Registration for the event is not required. Visitor parking is available in the Vulcan Garage, off Third Street near the campus entrance in California, Pa.
