Professor William Chandler from the University of California in San Diego gave a very well attended talk on the eve of the mid-term election in the US.

Around 70 guests gathered at the Albertina Lecture Hall on November 3rd to listen to the internationally-known political scientist's prognosis for the national elections that include a third of all US Senators, the entire House of Representatives, and some 36 governors.

With the premise in mind that the Democrats and the Republicans are increasingly losing common ground with which to create political compromises, Prof. Chandler predicted that the split between the two parties will manifest itself in an even more polarized election result.

Additionally, the fact that the President's party commonly suffers setbacks in the midterms plus the generally low voter turnout hinted toward possible further losses on the Democrat's side that could leave the Congress in Republican control.
