Henry Olsen On America's Extraordinary Election
Henry Olsen forecast the likely outcome of the US presidential election at the Danube Institute.
Henry Olsen, a Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington DC, forecast the results of the 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014 US presidential elections with remarkable accuracy. He is consequently regarded as among the first rank of political analysts in America with an unparallelled forecasting record.
Recently his work has focused on how to address the electoral challenges facing modern America in a way that reflects conservative ideas and values; this will culminate in a book examining Ronald Reagan’s intellectual legacy, to be published by Harper Collins in 2017. His articles have featured in many prominent publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, National Review, and The Weekly Standard.
Mr Olsen spoke about the 2016 US election, about the  contenders, and its likely outcome at the Danube Institute on 22nd October 2016.
