Everything You Need To Know About American Politics

American politics often looks fantastical, sometimes featuring epic battles between rival candidates, at other times looking chaotic and disorganized. Is American politics the greatest in the world, or just the greatest show on Earth? What’s actually going on? We’ll discuss some of the important questions of US politics including; How did Donald Trump end up as president? How does the US system differ from Canada? Why does America only seem to have two political parties? How does the electoral college work? Why do Americans vote the way they do? Why does American politics seem so polarized? What does recent political science scholarship say about American democracy?
