The American political system has always been dominated by two parties, but rarely have our politics felt so contentious. Americans are increasingly divided by their loyalties, and a growing number seem to identify as neither Democrats nor Republicans. In the face of daily scandals and policy gridlock in Washington, what does the future hold? Our experts discuss the dynamics of our political system and the path forward.

Moderator:
-Rob Genest, op-ed editor, the Springfield Republican.

-Donald Robinson, Professor Emeritus of Government, Smith College
-Samuel VanSant Stoddard, Assistant Professor of Political Science, College of the Holy Cross

-Brooke Hauser, editor in chief, Daily Hampshire Gazette
