Public Program: “Will Obama’s America Vote for Trump?"

Article Type 

President Obama rode sweeping demographic changes to clear victories in the last two presidential elections. Yet Donald Trump, who seems to go out of his way to alienate Mr. Obama's diverse coalition, is competitive in the general election. How can a candidate like Mr. Trump compete in the same country that elected Mr. Obama just four years ago? And will he win?

Nate Cohn, political correspondent for "The Upshot," a policy and politics site at The New York Times, will give the keynote address of the 2016 Dartmouth Experiments Conference titled, "Will Obama's America Vote for Trump?"

The Experiments Conference is sponsored by the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy, the Department of Government, the Program in Quantitative Social Science, and the Politics and Law Program.
