An Analysis of the Democrat and Republican Conventions in the U.S.

On 2 September 2020, as the U.S elections continue to draw closer, AMCHAM invited political expert Steven Okun to provide insight into the potential outcome of the upcoming elections.

This session was timely given that it comes right at the end of both the Democratic and Republican Conventions and after President Trump has accepted his party’s nomination. Steven Okun also briefed the attendees on what he thought were the convention moments that left the strongest impressions and the path forward for both presidential candidates. He then discussed the “Blue Shift”, which could be the most consequential phenomenon to understand this election. It was a very informative session for all those that were interested in the current state of the U.S. elections.
