This panel of experts on US politics and public opinion will examine the factors that contributed to the victory of Donald Trump and the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US presidential election. Is the outcome a sign of a new class divide in American politics? Was the vote influenced by racial considerations? What do election forensics show- were the votes counted fairly?
