Description: 

This class will teach you how to understand the fundamental factors that drive elections in America and to learn some of the skills employed by political professionals. Many of your assignments will require you to apply the lessons of this class to real time events. We will take special advantage of the fact that this class will take place while we are in the midst of the presidential primaries and will, perhaps, still be going when the general election launches. We will have a specific week where we examine the literature on presidential primaries, but will speak about it and compare it to our topic in all weeks.
