WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - Every Thursday 24 young people between the ages of 19 and 24 meet at American University to discuss the state of this year's presidential campaign. They are part of a class titled, "Presidential Campaign 2016: Inside the War Room and the Newsroom." Campaign 2016 U for short.
The class is lead by Professor Leonard Steinhorn. The mission is simple, says Steinhorn. "We will peel away each layer of this campaign, decode the images the candidates project, analyze the political and message strategy, examine the public mood, and look at each candidate's roadmap to victory. To do this, we will immerse ourselves in strategy, polls, issues, data, and media. We will dissect ads, debates, rhetoric, stagecraft, and images--and show how the press and pundits cover it all."
In the September 8th class the students discussed political correctness. Is America too PC as Donald Trump claims?
1. Is the Presidential race tightening?
2. What is the Gary Johnson factor?
3. Campaign Ad War
