Who will win the 2020 US presidential election? The outcome could shape America's - and the world's - future for years to come. On March 3rd, 2020, Americans in 14 states will pick their candidates to face off against President Trump in the November presidential election.

With the largest Democratic field of candidates in recent memory, Super Tuesday will reshape the already hotly contested Democratic race. Will the party turn to a progressive candidate or will a more centrist candidate emerge from Super Tuesday as the clear front-runner? The day after this important contest, join us for a panel discussion with academics and journalists who will reflect on the US presidential primary results and give their predictions for the general election.
