Mapping the US Political Landscape Ahead of the 2020 Presidential Election

AmCham Norway, in partnership with AmChams across the Nordics, hosted a highly engaging, data-driven session on the US presidential election with Pew Research Center’s Brad Jones.

With under 70 days left until Americans choose their next administration, the US is facing a menagerie of political, economic, and health issues – all culminating in a highly polarized political climate around what many commentators are calling the most important election in more than 50 years.

Jones, a research associate at the Center with a PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s top-ranked political science program, guided attendees through Pew Research Center’s extensive research on American political opinion. The insightful data shed light upon the evolution of American politics across a wide range of demographic groups, breaking down how public opinion is shifting around key issues in the runup to the election.

Jones concluded the session by answering attendee questions, highlighting the deep political complexity of the election, the influence of social turmoil in the US on polling, and the intricacies of polling and quantitative analysis in the wake of the 2016 presidential election.
