Election 2018: The Midterms
Election 2018, commonly known as the midterms, is a way station, shadowed by the legacy of Election 2016 and Russian meddling and the presidential election of 2020. While the entire House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate will be “up for grabs”, the focus will be on the outcome in battleground states. Examine such questions as what is the electoral outlook for the two parties and what are the prospects for a so-called Blue Wave; can the voting process be safeguarded and protected from hacking; will turnout match enthusiasm and rallies in the public space, especially on the Democratic side; what are the most important issues, (the economy, medical care, tax cuts, gun control, and immigration) among different interests and constituencies as well as voting itself.
