Advance ticket sales have ended but plenty of additional tickets remain available at the door.

Profs and Pints DC presents: “What the 2022 Election Results Mean,” a detailed assessment of the results of the 2022 midterm elections and their likely impact on American government and politics, with Matthew Green, professor and chair of the Department of Politics at Catholic University.

Every election promises to bring political change, and this is no less true of this year's highly competitive midterm elections. Party control of Congress, where Democrats hold extremely narrow majorities in both the House and Senate, hung in the balance. The governorships of dozens of states would also be decided on Election Day, and polling suggested that several state legislatures could also see majority control flip from one party to another.

Go beyond media coverage and get a scholarly perspective on the election results with the help of Professor Matthew Green, a scholar of congressional and electoral politics.

Providing an early post-election analysis of the election, Dr. Green will explain why it turned out the way it did and where various models for predicting the results were right or wrong. He’ll also discuss the election’s immediate and longer-term effect on national politics.

Will President Biden be able achieve his legislative goals over the next two years? What paths will states follow on policies ranging from abortion to taxation? How might the results shape the 2024 presidential election and Donald Trump’s influence over the Republican Party?

Join us the day after Election Day to learn the answers to these and other questions about the midterms and what they mean for the country. (Advance tickets: $12. Doors: $15, or $13 with a student ID. Listed time is for doors. Talk starts 30 minutes later. Please allow yourself time to place any orders and get seated and settled in.)
