Since 1896, Ohio voters have failed to favor the next president only twice (in 1944 and 1960). What about the Buckeye State makes it so special? In The Bellwether, Kyle Kondik, managing editor for the nonpartisan political forecasting newsletter Sabato’s Crystal Ball, blends data-driven research and historical documentation to explain Ohio’s remarkable record as a predictor of presidential results and why the state is essential to the 2016 election and beyond.
Kyle has analyzed American politics on CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC, and he has given speeches to groups at the U.S. Department of State, National Governors Association, Congressional Summer Intern Lecture Series, Princeton University, University of Virginia, and many others.
