Will Miller, assistant professor of public administration at Flagler College, has been invited to serve as the keynote speaker for an election night dinner hosted by Danske Capital at the New York City Public Library on Nov. 6.
Miller will be speaking before roughly 150 invited guests including internal representatives from Danske Capital along with select clients who are primarily CEOs and CIOs from Northern Europe’s leading pension funds, insurance companies and capital funds.
“The 2012 Presidential race is shaping up to be one of the most interesting of our time. With a clear difference between the views of the two major party candidates and a fairly polarized electorate with few truly undecided voters, all of Election Day will be spent looking at turnout and exit polls,” said Miller. “A small handful of voters in a few number of states have the potential to select the course of our country as we look toward the next four years.”
Miller’s presentation will focus on an overview of both the Romney and Obama campaigns and how their policy beliefs will potentially impact the economies of Northern Europe along with relationships between our nation and the region. He will be providing a detailed discussion of both demographic and polling trends in key battleground states and will be offering an analysis of exit polls as they become available and issuing predictions based on that data as merited. Miller’s research focuses on public opinion and electoral studies.
Miller has published an edited volume on the Tea Party’s impact on Senate races and American politics in 2010. He has two additional volumes set to be released in early 2013—one looking at the 2012 Republican Party nomination and the other on the Tea Party’s impact on 2012 races.
The dinner and Miller’s address serve as the culminating events for Danske’s two-day Capital Summit Seminar Program entitled “The U.S. & Global Economy: Outlook and Investment Implications.”
In lieu of an honorarium, Danske Capital will be donating to Flagler College to establish a textbook scholarship for students within the Public Administration Program.
“This is an excellent opportunity to speak as a member of the Flagler College faculty to an audience of international investors in a historic location about a potentially monumental election and help further awareness of our first-rate academic programs and students,” said Miller. “To be able to have Danske Capital make a donation to help students in the Public Administration Program only makes the opportunity that much more exciting.”
