 The US Mid Term Elections are (almost) over but what do the results mean for the future?

 Will Biden run again? If not, who are likely nominees?

 Will Trump be the Republican candidate? If not, then who?

 How will Biden manage having lost the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives?

 How will he use the Democrat majority in the Senate?

 And what were the key factors in the somewhat surprising election outcome? How important was the abortion issue and the female vote? And the Trump factor?

 Once again we have the very generous Professor Dr David Rosenbloom from Boston to enlighten us on these issues.

David Rosenbloom, PhD is currently Professor of Health Law, Policy and Management at the Boston University School of Public Health. He has been a student and participant in US politics for more than 50 years. He holds a PhD in Political Science from MIT where his work led to publication of The Election Men (Quadrangle Press, 1972), the first major book about the emergence of a professional campaign management industry in the US. He has helped lead voter registration and get out the vote activities in Presidential and other level campaigns since 1968.
