The Timeline of Presidential Elections: How Campaigns Do (And Do Not) Matter
11/05/2012 - 12:00 PM
To what extent do campaigns matter? Will voters cast their ballots for the candidates whose platform and positions best match their own, or will the race come down to who runs the most effective campaign?
On the eve of Election Day, join Columbia and Temple University political scientists Robert Erikson and Christopher Wlezien, who amassed data from 2,000 national polls covering every presidential election from 1952 to 2008, allowing them to see how outcomes take shape over the course of an election year, to answer that question. Their results may surprise you.
This program includes a round-table lunch discussion with the speakers immediately following the talk.
