USC experts in social media, psychology, political science, policy, law and journalism on Wednesday will discuss the election's impact on several issues - from concerns about human rights to our relationships on social media.

WHAT: USC Media Relations with Dornsife's Center for Economic and Social Research will host a coffee and brunch and two panels of experts, who will also respond to an open Q&A. The first panel, 9:30 a.m.-10:15 a.m., will discuss and respond to reporters' questions, such as:
- What happens in the Electoral College process?
- What campaign strategies were new and which ones may we see repeated in future political campaigns?
- How did this election shift political press coverage?
- How might a Trump presidency affect immigration policy and women's rights?
- What do the post-election protests signal for the future?
- Will this election affect women's efforts to run for office?
- Why did we lose so many Facebook friends this election?
- What has driven Americans apart, politically and socially?
The second panel, 10:30 a.m.-11:15 a.m., will focus on the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Presidential Election Daybreak poll, which indicated a swell of support for now President-elect Donald Trump. Discussion will include:
- Ultimately, was the Daybreak poll wrong or right?
- Why was it deemed "the outlier?"
- What did the poll tell us about America?
- Why do so many polls seem wrong in their predictions?
- Poll methodology: the weighting game
