Colorado’s top political observers will present their analyses of the 2022 election year and offer their predictions at a Crossley Center for Public Opinion Research program on January 13, 2022. The 2022 results could change the majority control of the U.S. Congress and set the political direction of Colorado for the next decade.
“Colorado Election 2022: Trends and Predictions” will be presented virtually via Zoom at 11:00 am (MT) on Thursday, January 13, 2022, by the University of Denver’s Crossley Center and the Center on American Politics at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies.
Crossley Center Director Floyd Ciruli and the panel will highlight national and local political and public opinion trends and how they will affect the Colorado election. Panel participants:
- Dick Wadhams, Denver Post columnist, CBS4 commentator, consultant, Republican
- Sheila MacDonald, Consultant for candidates, local and statewide ballot issues, Democrat
- Melanie Layton, State legislative lobbyist for two decades
- Seth Masket, Professor and director of DU’s Center on American Politics
The Crossley Center’s public engagement program aims to attract thought leaders and policymakers with diverse perspectives and backgrounds to participate in an informed and civil public conversation. The purpose is to give DU audiences and Coloradans an understanding of the major influences affecting their politics and policies.
