The exceptional nature of the 2016 presidential election naturally raises important questions about the state of American politics.  Drawing from his perspective as a student of political history and the impact of institutions on political choice, Professor Charles Stewart’s talk tries to distinguish between what might be anomalous aspects of the current presidential election and those factors that help identify tectonic shifts in how national politics is conducted.

Professor Stewart is director of the Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project, a leading research efforts that applies scientific analysis to questions about election technology, election administration, and election reform. Professor Stewart is an established leader in the analysis of the performance of election systems and the quantitative assessment of election performance.
