The 2018 federal election in the United States saw the Democrats take back the House of Representatives from the Republicans, proving to be a key constraint on President Trump’s policy agenda since then. The next federal election is less than six months away and will feature choices for president, one-third of the Senate and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives. What will drive American voter decisions? What would be the legislative priorities of a Democratic Congress and Biden White House? Are there any areas of bipartisanship remaining in this era of pervasive political polarisation?

To discuss these issues, USSC hosted a webinar event featuring Norm Ornstein, a leading political scientist and resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, in conversation with USSC Non-Resident Fellow Bruce Wolpe and USSC CEO Professor Simon Jackman.
