Polarization: Kristen Soltis Anderson and Margie Omero on ‘Analyzing the 2018 Midterm Elections’

The fifth installment of the “Polarization: A Civic Crisis” series explores the 2018 midterm election results locally and nationally.

About the Speakers

“The Pollsters” are Kristen Soltis Anderson (Republican) and Margie Omero (Democrat). They bring their podcasting partnership to ASU to analyze the results of the 2018 Midterm elections as they do regularly on their podcast, “The Pollsters.” Both Anderson and Omero, from different sides of the political spectrum, analyze the polls driving news in politics, tech, entertainment and pop culture.

About the Series

The polarized and compartmentalized intellectual climate on American campuses both mirrors and contributes to similar maladies in American civic life.

To examine the problem and begin to discuss possible solutions both at the level of the campus and society, Arizona State University’s School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership, together with its partners in the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, is hosting a lecture series and conference, “Polarization and Civil Disagreement: Confronting America’s Civic Crisis.” You can also watch discussions and join the conversation on Facebook.
