November 19: Post-Election Breakdown

It’s a Sacramento Press Club tradition and the hottest ticket in town: We welcome Mark DiCamillo of the UC Berkeley Institute for Governmental Studies and Mark Baldassare of the Public Policy Institute of California to discuss the results of the midterm elections. In addition to the outcome of key House races in California and across the country, DiCamillo and Baldassare will break down California voters’ choices on the slate of hot-button ballot initiatives, from a repeal of the 2017 gas tax increase to rent control, daylight savings time and space for farm animals. What about the "blue wave"? Did President Trump’s policies play a role in California’s contested races? Join the Sacramento Press Club on Nov. 19 as DiCamillo and Baldassare share their insights.

Mark Baldassare is president and chief executive officer of the Public Policy Institute of California. He is a leading expert on public opinion and survey methodology and directs the PPIC Statewide Survey. Baldassare is an authority on elections, voter behavior and political and fiscal reform. He has authored 10 books and many studies on these topics. Before joining PPIC, he was a professor of urban and regional planning at the University of California, Irvine.
Mark DiCamillo is director of the University of California, Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies Poll. Previously, he was senior vice president of Field Research Corporation and director of The Field Poll, a non-partisan, media-sponsored survey of California public opinion established in 1947 by polling pioneer Mervin Field. He has more than 35 years’ experience in the design and implementation of large-scale quantitative surveys, with particular emphasis on studies conducted within the state of California.
