Welcome to the Elections 2012 page, where the UCLA Political Science Department will keep you up to date on this year's presidential elections and what our professors have to say about it. Please check back often as our faculty are very active and new videos and interviews will be added regularly.
Professor Lynn Vavreck, one of the department's foremost public intellectuals, has been on the campaign trail in recent months studying the 2012 election as it unfolds.
Professor Tim Groseclose's book "Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind" has received ample press this year. It was most recently the basis for an article in the Orange County Registrar.
Professor John Zaller and a team of UCLA alumni coauthored a pivotal book on the subject of elections, "The Party Decides: Presidential Elections Before and After Reform."
