The Trials and Tribulations of the Body of Abraham Lincoln
- Community & Culture
“Politics is a good thing!” … is the slogan of Dr. Larry J. Sabato.
In July 2008, Dr. Sabato correctly projected that Barack Obama would win the Presidency in a near-landslide. He predicted a 364-174 margin in the Electoral College, just one vote away from the final tally of 365-173, and he also forecast President Obama’s exact 53% popular vote margin.
Dr. Sabato will now turn his “Crystal Ball” to the 2012 election and reflect on how the race has developed thus far and what is to come in the months and days leading up to November. Dr. Sabato will address the important issues, the key states, and the leading characters in the race for the White House and take a look at the future of the Senate and House in 2012 and beyond.
Dr. Sabato is the University Professor of Politics and director of the U.Va. Center for Politics, founded in 1998 to improve civic education and the political process. He is the author of 24 books and countless essays on politics, including the well known Feeding Frenzy; A More Perfect Constitution; and The Year of Obama. His latest book is the newly-released volume on the 2010 midterm elections entitled Pendulum Swing.
