Election Day 2016 was the focus of our entire edition of KJZZ’s Here and Now.

As part of the segment, we spoke with NAU political scientist Fred Solop. He reacted to Democrat Tom O’Halleran’s 2nd Congressional District win over Republican Paul Babeu.

He also discussed the future of polling and why so many polls incorrectly predicted Election Day results.
