The American Political Science Review (APSR) will soon publish a paper coauthored by Dr. Judd Thornton, Assistant Professor of Political Science, on the causal effects of election salience on partisan attachments. Along with Shane Singh, Associate Professor of International Affairs at the University of Georgia, Dr. Thornton finds strong evidence that election salience increases the probability of one having a party attachment, increases the strength of attachments, and heightens the relationship between partisanship and evaluations of political actors. APSR is a leading quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal.
