Watch video from the January 9 Lunch and Learn event with David Lewis.
David Lewis, assistant chair of political science, spoke on “What to Expect in Obama’s Second Term”.
President Obama was reelected with 332 Electoral College votes and 50.6% of the popular vote. Internationally, he faces a number of challenges in regions ranging from North Korea to the Middle East to South America. Domestically, he must deal with a sluggish economy and a divided Congress. This talk will deal broadly with how presidents approach second terms and what to expect from President Obama given his specific context. President Obama will certainly look to establish a legacy but what are his prospects for success?
