Tomorrow: Food for Thought w/ Prof. Sides

18 Mar

Never put off tomorrow what you can do today!  Particularly apt in this case, since today’s your last chance to register for this free lunch and lecture with Prof. John Sides!

Food for Thought: The Story of the 2012 Presidential Campaign (in Graphs!)

“Game changer.” We heard it so many times during the 2012 U.S. presidential election. But what actually made a difference—and what was just hype? John Sides will tell the story of the election in just a few graphs — using a “moneyball” approach that gets beyond the anecdote, folklore, and conventional wisdom that often pass for election analysis.

Tuesday, March 19th from 11:30am-12:30pm in Ames 101Q (MVC).

Seats are capped at 15, so register now!

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!
