      Despite scores of worthy and incisive studies of the election, we still do not have a clear understanding of some of its basic dynamics. For most Americans, voting is the only form of political participation. The Democratic vote, however, declined 3. Debates give people an opportunity to learn about those who will be president.

      Our fourth simulation measures this very thing: What would the election look like if there had not been any demographic changes in the past four years? However, the differences with respect to white non-college-educated and college-educated voter turnout are huge: the exit polls showed the share of white college voters to be actually larger, at 41 percent, than white non-college-educated votes, at 40 percent, while our data show that white non-college-educated voters were actually far more numerous. I am going to focus on the differences between the PR, FPTP and IRV; attention will be laid also on how the electoral system shapes the relative structure and strength of the political parties. If this shift had not occurred, Clinton would have won the state by 5 points. Notably, this simulation does not produce a Democratic win in Ohio despite the fact that Obama won that state in Robustness of simulation While this first simulation produces the largest Electoral College win out of all our simulations, this says nothing about the difficulty of achieving it.

      It not only produces a large Electoral College win, but also one that is particularly robust. Hochschild and Weaver found that income inequality among blacks today is higher than all other racial and ethnic groups, and that blacks with better economic well-being are much less likely to be victims of violent crime than those who are poor. Our data also show that the share of white non-college-educated voters declined by more than a percentage point compared toand the white college share increased by 2 points. It may very well be the case that simulations that produce the biggest Electoral College wins or the most secure state-level margins would have been the hardest to achieve.

From a psychological perspective, value references are crucial to determine individual preferences. Local and regional elections differ, as people tend to elect those who seem more capable to contribute to their area.

Robustness of simulation While this first simulation produces the largest Electoral College win out of all our simulations, this says nothing about the difficulty of achieving it. An experiment on students at the University of Massachusetts Amherst showed that people who had been primed with an anger condition relied less upon issue-concordance when choosing between candidates than those who had been primed with fear.

Others describe these spots as selling candidates like any other product.
