At the summit, veteran pollsters Stan Greenberg of Democracy Corps and Whit Ayres of Resurgent Republic will discuss the impact of Election Day and what the results mean moving forward based upon their respective post-election surveys. The newly released data will offer an in-depth look at President Obama's winning coalition, the changing demographics of the national electorate, voters' final perception of both presidential candidates and how the electorate ranked the key issues. 

Panel discussions throughout the day-long event will explore the current political landscape and examine where the two parties may find common ground going forward to address the nation's most pressing policy issues.

The event is open to press, but space is limited. If you're interested in attending, please RSVP to press@bipartisanpolicy.org.
