Research Paper in Voting and Public Opinion

Have you ever wondered what affects voting behavior? How might the economy, or one's identity, affect political party affiliation? Can public opinion shifts explain how the Democratic and Republican parties have changed over time? Together, we can use economics and political science research techniques to learn more about voting and public opinion. I can help you develop a quantitative research design and measurement strategy to answer these questions and uncover truths about voting behavior. This kind of paper will be very quantitative and look a variety of data sources. It might even involve collecting your own data!
