This webinar is part of the Series - Agenda 2020: Making Sense of the American Election.
Drawing from expert and public surveys conducted by Bright Line Watch, a group he co-founded, Nyhan will present new research on the state of American democracy and assess the extent to which the country is suffering from erosion in its performance on key democratic principles and norms.
