What is included with this book?
Do voters cast their ballots based on candidates' policy positions and current government performance? Or does the race come down largely to who runs the most effective campaign? It's a question those who study elections have been considering for years with no clear resolution. In The Timeline of Presidential Elections, Robert S. Erikson and Christopher Wlezien reveal for the first time how both factors come into play.
