My current research continues my attention to the study of policy/ideological preferences and their role in democratic governance. Theoretically, it focuses on social psychological accounts of partisanship, spatial models of politics, and theories parties. Empirically, my work addresses important developments in contemporary American politics, like partisan realignment and party polarization.
My most recent papers are:
- The Space of American Public Opinion: Ideological Dimensionality in Models of Political Behavior,” (with Chris Hare and Brad Jones).
- The Policy Polarization of Party Activists in the United States” (with Sam Collitt).
- Reconciling Candidate Extremism and Spatial Voting” (with Walt Stone).
- The Cultural Realignment of State White Electorates in the 21st Century.”
- Issue Accountability in U.S. House Elections.”
