About the Webinar
Celinda Lake, President of Lake Research Partners, will be sharing findings around voters with disabilities and seniors as an important segment of the electorate. It is clear that in this political moment it is vital to engage every demographic and understanding their voting patterns is necessary to do this well. People with disabilities and seniors must be well represented in the U.S. political system in order to have a representative democracy. Seniors and people with disabilities are beginning to engage in patterns of voting more Democratically in recent years and it is important to know how to engage their politics and discuss which issues are important to them. Her talk will focus on publicly available polling, as well as her own insight into these demographics – including the generic congressional ballot, President Trump’s job approval, and voting in the 2018 election.
