Is Obama More Popular than he Should Be? [Good Article]

4 May

Check out this article by Prof. John Sides at FiveThirtyEight on his research.  UHPer  Jessica Burnell has been RA’ing on this work with Prof. Sides all semester!

What’s striking, however, is that Mr. Obama may be more popular than he should be. That is the result of some new analysis that will be included in a book I’m writing with a fellow political scientist, Lynn Vavreck, on the 2012 election. I’ll preview a bit of it here.
If you think this is exciting stuff, make sure to apply to work with Prof. Sides next semester as a research assistant!
Even if you can’t serve as a research assistant, Prof. Sides will be teaching a course as a Faculty Fellow for the UHP in spring 2013 — so keep an eye out!
