ROBERT M. STEIN
Myth and Reality about the 2000 Presidential Election.
In order to the win in November a presidential candidate must be able to hold his partisan base and win a majority of the independent vote. How true is this conventional thinking? What if any influence will the third-party candidacies of Ralph Nader and Pat Buchanan have on the outcome of November's election? How well have Governor George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore executed their respective campaign strategies to win the White House? Professor Stein will address these and other questions about the 2000 presidential election.
The results of the 2000 presidential, congressional, and state elections promise to have significant consequences for public policy. Change in partisan control of the presidency and Congress may produce significant shifts in health care, education, and reproductive policy. The election of 2000 may also bring an end to divided government. Professor Stein will examine these and other policy consequences of election 2000.
