TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- It's been one week since Donald Trump's election, and many are still discussing how he won the presidency.

Some of those discussions are happening over drinks in Tallahassee.

Backyard Bistro is full, not just for food, but for political insight.

The FSU College of Social Sciences and Public Policy hosted its third 'Policy Pub' Wednesday night.

They touched on topics like Trump's agenda, ongoing protests against him, and what Democrats should do next.

The goal of the pub talk: understanding both sides in a discussion.

FSU Professor of Sociology Deana Rohlinger said, "We really need to break down those silos, breaking down those walls. Otherwise we can't do what everyone says we need to do as a country, which is move forward and understand each other. We need to make efforts to reach out to those which we don't agree and connect with them in a meaningful way."

Another big talking point? The Electoral College.

Some say it needs to go, while others argue that would require a constitutional convention which would have too many complications.

The Policy Pub will meet again in January.
