Meeting of Minnesota University Professor of Political Science David Schultz with Students


On March 19, 2019, Karazin University held a meeting with Minnesota University Professor of Political Science David Schultz (USA) who made a presentation on modern American politics.

During the event, the Professor told those present about the changes in the US politics over the past 40 years, the level of population polarization, the election of the US President in 2020. He also explained what it means to be a swing voter. As an example, the Professor described US voters in 1976 in comparison with modern ones.

A separate issue was the US Electoral College formation. “In order to win the presidential election in the United States, an absolute majority of 270 votes is required. Of all the voters, only ten percent of ten major states really determined who would receive these votes in 1976. In 2016, the situation changed, and twelve states have already had power,” David Schultz said.

He also presented his book “Presidential Swing States” and gave access to its electronic version. You can get it in the Information Center “Window on America”, located at room 7-47, 7th floor, University Main Building.
