How U.S. Public Opinion Will Shape the Next U.S. Administration

On October 5, AmCham Denmark welcomed members to a virtual discussion on how U.S. public opinion will shape the next U.S. administration with Bruce Stokes, Non-Resident Transatlantic Fellow at the German Marshall Fund in Washington D.C. The webinar is part of an ongoing 2020 U.S. Election Series held in partnership with the Nordic AmChams.

Bruce Stokes shared his perspective on how the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election is shaping up to be one of the most tightly contested in American history, fueled by a diverse range of concurrent issues, including COVID-19, civil unrest, and a recession.

Both presidential candidates are are currently campaigning vigorously to mobilize their voter bases – including the untapped ones. The key to understanding how these voter attitudes may affect the election outcome is to understand the issues that divide them.
