The Uncertain Suburbs: Trump, Congress, and Swing Voters -- The State of Suburban Politics in 2018

Suburban voters are a key constituency in U.S. politics, and recent special election results indicate that they may be decisive in the upcoming midterm elections. What issues motivate them, and are they changing? How do we see parties and candidates appealing to the suburbs in this election cycle, and are their efforts likely to succeed?

 This is the first of three panel discussions on April 17 presented by Peter S. Kalkow Center for the Study of the American Presidency and the National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra University® and entitled The Uncertain Suburbs: Trump, Congress, and Swing Voters.
