In the days following the landmark 2000 election, as every last ballot in Florida was counted and re-counted to determine who America’s next president would be, the message to voters could not have been clearer: your vote really does count.
In an effort to shed light on voter attitudes, to examine who voted and who didn’t and why, and to explain the virtual 50-50 division between Gore and Bush, Andrew Kohut of the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press will release the results of his post-election survey.
A distinguished group of panelists with backgrounds in politics, journalism, and political science will be on hand to analyze the results of the study and discuss what its findings mean for future elections.

The lesson learned from Europe, which has borne the brunt of Russian attacks, is that Russia can be deterred but that requires leadership. For that reason, this report would have sent a much stronger message to the Trump administration if it had Republican support. As is, it is an urgent warning and a call to action, but it may fall on deaf ears.
