Faculty podcast: Making sense of the 2020 presidential campaign
KENNESAW, Ga. (May 21, 2020) — Kennesaw State University political science professors Andy Pieper and Kerwin Swint discuss the unique 2020 presidential campaign in the latest episode of Swint’s “Political Futures” podcast.
Conducting the Donald Trump-Joe Biden presidential race amidst the COVID-19 pandemic “has given us one of the strangest political campaigns in American history,” Swint said. “We’ll try to make some sense of that in this podcast.”
Swint, director of the School of Government and International Affairs at Kennesaw State, provides a non-partisan perspective on current events on “Political Futures.” His guest this week, Pieper, specializes in American government, national political institutions and political communication.
