What we Know (And Don't Know) About Presidential Campaigns

Show Summary Details


This chapter, which reviews the classic literature on campaigns, elections, and voting behavior, consciously attempts to define subtle and complex arguments on presidential campaign effects. It then discusses the sources of renewed interest in campaign effects, before moving to a delineation of the most recent findings produced by this renaissance. Finally, the chapter identifies common ground and consensus, as well as gaps in our understanding—gaps that the book hopes to address.
