As Jim Rutenberg of the New York Times so emphatically stated, political pundits on the presidential primary scene were “wrong, wrong, wrong—to the very end, we got it wrong.” Most of the rules of running for the presidency were broken during this 2016 election cycle. Communications from candidates, often sometimes sent directly through social media, reflect a whole new discourse with potential voters. Our panelists will dissect this evolving, often surreal, landscape of presidential politics, delineating why this campaign is so radically different and what it means for the future of our democracy.
