New Princeton Election Blog

- September 22, 2008

Princeton’s Center for the Study of Democratic Politics has a new blog centered on the 2008 election. Its inaugural posts include these goodies:

* Larry Bartels shows in even more detail why Alan Brinkley is wrong about electoral politics. (My take is here and here.)

* Bartels cites a finding from this paper — one that that should demonstrate once and for all that Thomas Frank’s intuitions are no substitute for the facts: more than twice as many working-class people believe that Democratic politicians “would feel more comfortable having a beer with a truck driver, construction worker, or waitress” as believe that Republican politicians would feel this way.

I look forward to much more.
