Shaping America's Future

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 selected 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 reshaped the already hotly contested Democratic race. The day after this important contest, US Centre join hosted a panel discussion with academics and journalists who reflected on the US presidential primary results and gave their predictions for the general election.
