Welcome to our Political Science Independent Study blog!
We are a group of four sophomores who will be spending the next couple of weeks traveling back and forth to New Hampshire to view the political spectacle leading up to the primary on February 9th. Aside from observing the events as students of Political Science, we will also be conducting a survey experiment on the effect that provocative statements have on voters’ decisions. Also, for discussions with our advisor, Professor Bert Johnson, we are reading texts like The Gamble and The Party Decides: Presidential Nominations Before and After Reform to better understand the process we are studying. We will use this blog to write about the events we attend and share our experiences.
Please join us on our New Hampshire adventure!
