COMING LATE THIS YEAR: The Positive Case for Negative Campaigning, a new book by Kyle Mattes and David Redlawsk from the University of Chicago Press.

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.
