I did a talk on the book at Eagleton. You can see it here on YouTube. I also did a recent interview with WHYY radio which is much shorter than the book talk!

AVAILABLE NOW: The Positive Case for Negative Campaigning, by Kyle Mattes and David Redlawsk from the University of Chicago Press. The book is available at Amazon, and you can see a preview of Ch 1 at Google Books. Here is an interview I did about the book for the Boston Globe.

In Why Iowa? How Caucuses and Sequential Elections Improve the Presidential Nominating Process, my co-authors Caroline Tolbert and Todd Donovan and I explore the place of Iowa in a sequential system. We conclude that despite its problems and limitations, the Iowa Caucuses provide significant benefits in the existing presidential nominating system. The book can be ordered on Amazon and you can see a preview of it on Google Books. It's published by the University of Chicago Press. My co-author Caroline Tolbert and I published a piece in the New York Times online "Room for Debate" late in 2011 about what Iowans wanted from their caucus candidates.

Why is it hard for voters to make decisions in a primary?
AP science writer Malcolm Ritter has a story about this, quoting me, as well as my colleague and co-author Rick Lau.

A short piece I published in the New York Times online edition about how motivated reasoning can help explain resistance to facts showing President Obama was born in Hawai'i.
