On November 13, 2018, the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford University Law School held an event to discuss the latest political science research into the impact of Supreme Court nominations on elections. What are the historical trends? What can we learn through modern data-management technologies?
The lecture-type presentation was billed as a “Constitutional Conversation”. After a brief introduction, the main speaker David Brady expanded on the theme provided in this brief description from the event invite:
The Supreme Court is a non-partisan institution, but no one doubts it has an impact on elections. But what exactly does the data tell us about that relationship — especially when it comes to Supreme Court nominations and midterm elections? Join the Constitutional Law Center for a discussion with political scientist David Brady on what we know, what we don’t know, and how recent events in the confirmation process might impact House and Senate races across the country
David Brady is a professor and Senior Fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research. The video lasts about an hour. Take a look!!
