          About This Event

          Summary

          From the Iowa caucus to Inauguration Day, in presidential elections the game of politics captivates America. The final scoreboard is produced by voters on Election Day, but the race is scored each day with the release of new national and swing state polls. With each fresh polling result, one side rejoices while the other looks to discredit its methods. Partisanship is the force that determines which side of that debate one is on and it is partisanship that turns politics into sport. It's us versus them. The 2012 Bulen Symposium on American Politics promises to bring many and varied perspectives on the game of politics.
