Videos from Our Previous Live Events

On April 24 we continued our focus on battleground states when P4D takes a hard look at two midwestern states that are critical to President Biden’s path to victory:  Wisconsin and Michigan.  Democrats carried both states in the 2020 election, but the landscape is more complicated in this election. A replay of the event is posted on the right.

The road to a Democratic victory for the White House goes through seven critical states —Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. In this special event aired on 2/27/24, three experts on the issues discuss the specific dynamics underlying the vote in Arizona and Nevada.



P4D dives deep into why the Wisconsin Election for the State Supreme Court is so important for the rest of country.
