Elections are always historical moments in our society. Presidential election years especially, ramp up enthusiasm (or disdain) among citizens and ask for us to engage in our democratic heritage in a deeper way. Whether you knocked on doors or watched the events unroll from the sidelines, the New Politics Forum's 2012 Post-Election Debriefing offerd a space to reflect on what this shared experience meant for us all.

In this full-length video, three "TED talk-style" presentations shed light on what happened with frameworks such as: the role partisan bias plays in how citizens get information (with Dr. Talia Stroud, author of "Niche News: The Politics of News Choice"); Latino influence in American and Texas politics (with Dr. Sylvia Manzano- Senior Analyst at Latino Decisions); and misinformation and misperceptions in politics (with Dr. Dhavan Shah, director of the Mass Communication Research Center at the University of Wisconsin). Q & A and discussion to follow.

A keynote conversation with members of the working press and political strategists all sharing the insiders' perspective about what actually happened on the campaign trail, featured Will Cain (CNN and The Blaze), Cornell Belcher (Democratic pollster and contributor to CNN), Christina Bellantoni (PBS NewsHour), and Charles Mahtesian (POLITICO).
