David Wasserman: Border Districts For 2018 Elections
In this video, US House Editor for the Cook Political Report, David Wasserman, comments on the importance of border districts for Republican or Democratic majorities. He shares how he believes Republicans did a decent job of getting their vote out compared to some of the other races we have watched.
An enthusiast for data and maps, Wasserman served as a contributing writer to the 2014 and 2016 editions of the Almanac of American Politics. A frequent speaker and guest lecturer, he has shared insights into the latest political trends with audiences at Harvard's Institute of Politics, the Dole Institute of Politics, and the University of Chicago Institute of Politics – where he taught a seminar on redistricting and electoral geography and was named a Pritzker Fellow in 2019. Wasserman was also awarded “Best of Twitter” honors by Twitter in 2014 for his real-time election coverage.
Prior to joining the The Cook Political Report in 2007, Wasserman served for three years as House editor of Sabato’s Crystal Ball, a widely respected political analysis newsletter and website founded by renowned University of Virginia professor Larry Sabato. In that role, Wasserman led the publication to correctly predict Democrats would score a gain of 29 House seats in November 2006.
