John Zaller, UCLA: Parties on the Ground: A Study of Open Seat Nominations for the House of Representatives
Sep 24, 2015 · 12:00 p.m.– 1:20 p.m. · 300 Wallace Hall
John Zaller is Professor of Political Science at UCLA. He studies American politics and public opinion. His first book, The Nature and Origins of Mass Opinion (Cambridge, 1992), explored how political messages reach the public and influence its thinking. Recent books include The Party Decides: Presidential Nominations Before and After Reform (Chicago Studies in American Politics. His forthcoming book, A Theory of Media Politics, describes how the conflicting interests of reporters, politicians, and citizens shape the news. A second in-progress book, which is co-authored with three graduate students in the department, is called Beating Reform: The Resurgence of Parties in Presidential Nominations, 1980 - 2000. Its argument is that, by coordinating among themselves and controlling the resources necessary to run in the primaries, party leaders now control presidential nominations as firmly as they did in the period prior to the McGovern-Fraser reforms. Other recent projects use simulation models to explore incumbency advantage in House elections and to determine the power of opinion surveys to identify the influence of media events on public sentiment. He served for eight years on the Board of Overseers of the National Election Studies and has been elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences.
