In 2016, polls and pundits were widely criticised for failing to predict the victory of Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton.  Among the handful to correctly predict a Trump victory were Lichtman and Norpoth.  Both heave each correctly predicted the outcome of the majority of presidential elections in recent history, yet, this year, they disagree.  On the day of the US election, we bring them together to debate who will win
