Political panel discussion

The entire political world is watching Ohio as we head into the November presidential election. And we’re inviting you to watch back and participate with the help of experts from both parties and from one of the most closely watched polls now taking the measure of the Buckeye State.


Join us for a lively discussion among:

  • Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
  • Gerald Austin, longtime Democratic political consultant.
  • Mark Weaver, longtime Republican political consultant.


They’ll examine what voters say they want, what politicians say they want and how everyone is trying to respond.
