I am a professor of Political Science at North Carolina State University, where I have been since 2002. I received a BA in Political Science from Duke University and MA and PhD from Ohio State. My research and expertise focuses on American public opinion and American elections, broadly. I also have more specific interests in gender and politics, media and politics, political parties, and North Carolina politics. My research has appeared in wide array of peer-reviewer Political Science journals including, Ther American Political Science Review, Political Research Quarterly, Social Science Quarterly, American Politics Review, and Gender and Politics. My book, published, with Laurel Elder of Hartwick College, is The Politics of Parenthood:Causes and Consequences of the Politicization of the American Family.

In discussing American and North Carolina government, I have appeared on BBC-4, CBS Early Show, CNN, CNBC, WRAL, WNCN, WTVD, and WUNC-TV. I have been on the radio with NPR, WUNC, and stations in Canada, Jamaica and Colombia.
