For Immediate Release

The country’s first woman president? The country’s first African-American president? The current battle of the primaries is the hottest—and the most hopeful—in decades, with Americans looking for a new leader who can fix the economy and regain the world’s respect.

University of Hawaii at Hilo professor Dr. Todd Belt is offering a four-session series of discussions on the election of the U.S. president, scheduled to coincide with some of the important primary elections and caucuses. The sessions will be held on January 22, 29, February 5, 12 from 5-6:30 p.m. in UH Hilo’s UCB 111. Cost is $25.

Students will watch the field winnow down on both sides while Belt explains the political plays and ploys. They’ll learn how to make predictions about the upcoming presidential general election based on primary results, past voting tendencies, current polling—and will learn some political science theory along the way. Key congressional races, also crucial to our future, are also on the agenda.
