Battle for the soul of America: making sense of the midterms

Battle for the soul of America: making sense of the midterms

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

This is a digital-only ThinkIn.

Presidents nearly always get battered in the midterm elections – remember Barack Obama’s shellacking in 2010, only two years after he swept into the White House?

Will Republicans take back control of the House and the Senate, or will they pay a heavy price for backing Trump’s election fraud fantasy? And will Democratic voters turn out in enough numbers to fight back against the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn abortion rights?

Join us to digest the results and their impact on the US and the world.
