Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Order and simplicity in the 2018 elections
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Barry Burden, UW Department of Political Science
Abstract: To the casual observer, U.S. elections often appear to be the result of an unpredictable process driven by personalities and chance events. Although each election cycle has unique elements, I suggest that results are in fact highly predictable and reflect contextual variables in place well before election. The 2018 midterm elections in particular were the result of the well-established "cost of governing" phenomenon and structural biases in legislative districts in Wisconsin and the country.
