Election expert Kyle Kondik to speak Sept. 22 at Western Campus
What makes Ohio so critical for winning the White House? Election expert Kyle Kondik has the answer, and he’ll share it during an upcoming discussion at the Western Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
The free program — “Ohio’s Role in Picking the President” — will take place at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22, in Tri-C’s Western Campus Theatre in Parma.
Kondik blends data-driven research and historical documentation to explain Ohio’s remarkable record as a presidential predictor. Since 1896, voters in the Buckeye State have failed to favor the next president only twice (1944 and 1960).
His new book, The Bellwether, examines Ohio’s long-running ability to accurately pick the next president and explains why the state will remain essential to victory in the 2016 election and beyond.

Kondik is managing editor of Sabato’s Crystal Ball, a nonpartisan political tip sheet produced by the University of Virginia Center for Politics. He is a native of Independence.
His visit is part of the Carol S. Franklin Social Science Speakers Series sponsored by the Western Campus Division of Social Sciences. The series provides a forum to enhance awareness of current events and issues relevant to the community.
