Looking at presidential elections

On this Election Day BC Bookmarks highlights the new edition of a text co-authored by Boston College Assistant Professor of Political Science David Hopkins, Presidential Elections: Strategies and Structures of American Politics. Hopkins’ areas of study and teaching include American political parties and elections, the U.S. Congress, voting behavior and public opinion. Here is what the publisher has to say about Presidential Elections: Brimming with data and examples from the historic 2008 election, and laced with previews of 2012, the thirteenth edition of this classic text offers a complete overview of the presidential election process from the earliest straw polls and fundraisers to final voter turnout and exit interviews. The newest edition’s comprehensive coverage includes campaign strategy with overviews of the changes in campaign finance and the growing role of the Internet. Also, the thirteenth edition explores the effect of the forward-creeping presidential nomination process and the sequence of electoral events.
