Choice and Chance in the 2012 Presidential Election

11/04/13 - Monday’s Topical Currents reflects on the 2012 Presidential Election, with political science professors John Side and Lynn Vavreck. Commentators and pundits quickly gave reasons for President Obama’s win . . . but detailed study by academics adds a dose of reality to the result. They drew on scads of data about voters, media coverage and candidate advertising.  It’s all in the book THE GAMBLE:  Choice and Chance in the 2012 Presidential Election.  That’s Topical Currents Monday at 1pm.
