Here are a few of my projects:
“Bias In Perceptions of Public Opinion Among American Political Elites” (with David Broockman). Forthcoming at American Political Science Review. A previous paper from this project was “What Politicians Believe About Their Constituents: Asymmetric Misperceptions and Prospects for Constituency Control.”
- Coverage in Salon, Vice News, Wonkblog, The Atlantic, The Atlantic Wire, Pacific Standard, The Huffington Post, The Dish (Andrew Sullivan), MSNBC, The New York Times, Bridge Michigan, David Sirota’s syndicated column, the Detroit Free Press, Chicago Magazine, Real Clear Politics, The Monkey Cage, The Daily Beast, The Guardian, Salon, and Vox. I talked about this project on UP with Chris Hayes, Jefferson Public Radio (mp3), and Night Shift with Tony Trupiano on WDFN. Andrew Sullivan named a chart David and I made one of the top ten charts of the year.
Having Their Cake and Eating It, Too: Why Local Party Leaders Don’t Support Nominating Centrists. With David Broockman, Nicholas Carnes and Melody Crowder-Meyer. A previous version of this paper was: “Who’s a Good Candidate? How Party Gatekeepers Evaluate Potential Nominees.”
