In an election cycle with surprising religious themes and after political party conventions full of religious appeals, the Initiative brought together top reporters and experts at the intersection of faith and the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
These journalists shared their reporting and insights on how religious values and voters are shaping the election, along with the ways major party candidates President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden and their campaigns are reaching out. The online conversation looked forward to potential outcomes and their implications for religion, democracy, and the common good.
In addition, the dialogue opened with a summary and analysis of the latest polling on religious voters and trends from Pew Research Center.
John Carr, director of the Initiative, moderated the conversation.
