The United States Studies Centre held a special US midterms watch party and trivia night on 9 November 2022 at the Marlborough Hotel for university students.

The results of the 2022 midterm elections will shape the US legislative agenda for the next two years. What will the polls reveal about the wants of the American people, the state of US democracy, and the future of the US president’s reform agenda? How will key areas of interest for Australia – climate change, trade and tech policy – change based on the makeup of the new Congress?

The informative and entertaining night included a range of midterms-themed activities, competitive team trivia rounds, and lots of giveaways.

The event was hosted by Associate Professor David Smith, a trusted commentator on all things US politics. Dr Smith spoke about the elections revealing what they mean for the years ahead in America and worldwide.
