About This Event
Home to the Iowa caucuses and a host of critical swing states, the Midwest is poised to play a defining role in the 2020 presidential election. Candidates and strategists are studying the region closely, using the latest polling data to plan campaign stops, fine-tune messaging, and capture the political mood. Will global trends and economic forces-tariffs, immigration, climate change-motivate voters, or will local concerns and controversies influence the result? One week after the Iowa caucuses, analysts from across the region convene to take the election-year pulse of the heartland.
