The 2012 US presidential election: a Moneyball approach
From VoxEU.org comes a new audio interview. On the eve of the US presidential election debates, John Sides of George Washington University talks to Romesh Vaitilingam about the ‘fundamentals’ and ‘specifics’ driving voters’ intentions. They discuss the influence of the state of the economy, the role of campaign finance, the likely impact of the debates and what might happen to US political gridlock after the election.
