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.
Robert S. Erikson is professor of political science at Columbia University and the author or coauthor of several books, including The Macro Polity. Christopher Wlezien is professor of political science at Temple University and coauthor of Degrees of Democracy, among other books.
