Presentation at the Annual Conference of the PSA Methods Group

I will be presenting joint work with Susumu Shikano at the Annual Conference of the Political Methodology Group of the Political Studies Association in Essex on January 12, 2018. Come join me if you are curious about “Short-term dynamics of political preferences: Candidate valence during electoral campaigns”. In this paper, we employ data from the 2013 Rolling-Cross-Section Panel Study of the Austrian National Election Study (AUTNES) to analyze how perceptions of candidate position and candidate valence shift as the campaign progresses. We find that voters are more likely to update their valence perceptions of the candidates than their ideological perceptions.
