Before beginning this assignment, make certain that you have read Chapter 9 of your text on “Campaigns and Voting Behavior.” Then read the three articles linked below before writing a brief report. The report should contain three separate sections that address all the points in each set of questions. Notice the expected word count for each section (exceeding the word count will not negatively affect your grade, but please try to stay within the range).
1. Using the relevant parts of Chapter 9 of your text that focus on explaining citizens’ voting decisions, briefly list and describe some of the major factors that explain voters’ choices. What factors related to demographics are associated with vote choice (e.g., gender, age, race, religion, and education)? Be certain to explain what is meant by “policy voting” and describe the conditions that promote/reduce this form of voting. Ignore chapter 9 references; answer as best as possible
2. Based on your reading of “The Presidential Penalty,” what patterns have political scientists recognized with regard to House and Senate mid-term elections? What factors are responsible for these patterns? Why are some midterm elections worse for the president’s party than others?
3. Given the points made in the article “Why the President’s Party Almost Always Has a Bad Midterm,” what can beexpected in 2022 for the Democrats? How might the abortion issue play a role in the midterm elections (given what you learned from: “Democrats Hope Draft Abortion Opinion Will Jolt Midterm Elections”)?
Be careful not to plagiarize. If you want to quote directly, do so using quotation marks (giving the page number if available). But try to do this sparingly and simply use your own words in addressing the questions.
In your writing, use an analytical tone that is free of your personal opinions. In other words, try to answer the questions in a straightforward and objective manner.
