POS 2320 - U.S. Campaigns and Elections

3 cr
This course concentrates on this year’s presidential election process. We consider the institutions and processes of the electoral systems in the United States at the national, state and local levels. We analyze the effect of the structure of the electoral system itself, as well as the impact of political parties, interest groups, the media, campaign financing, political culture and ideology. And we examine how well the U.S. electoral system supports the principles and goals of democracy.
