The Presidential Election of 2016 has been unlike any in modern American history. How did voters decide between Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton? What issues dominated the election in the final days of each campaign, and what consequences will this campaign have on the Republican and Democratic parties? What does this election mean for political polarization, campaign finance reform, and the rise of social media?
Post-election analysis with Larry Diamond, Francis Fukuyama, Bruce Cain, and Nate Persily, moderated by Didi Kuo, has been sponsored by the Program on American Democracy in Comparative Perspective at Stanford's Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law. The panel discussed the candidates, the campaigns, and the implications for American democracy.
