The Presidential Elections Program studies presidential elections in a nonpartisan and comprehensive manner, serving as a valuable source of data-driven analysis for citizens, journalists and political leaders alike. The program offers timely analysis during and after each presidential election cycle, allowing stakeholders of all parties and groups to better understand and interact with the changing dynamics of presidential campaigns. The program builds on the unrivaled experience of the institute’s honorary chair, Secretary James A. Baker, III, who played a leading role in five presidential campaigns. Veteran political consultants Mary Matalin and James Carville served as honorary directors of the program’s second conference in December 2019.
