The candidate : what it takes to win, and hold, the White House by Samuel L Popkin( )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking at the last 60 years of races for the White House, Popkin analyzes why some "inevitable" winners lost and how dark horses won against long odds. All of the winners assembled smoothly working teams, were agile enough to respond quickly to hits, had a core of beliefs, and prepared years in advance
The reasoning voter : communication and persuasion in presidential campaigns by Samuel L Popkin( Book )

29 editions published between 1991 and 2020 in English and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Reasoning Voter is an insider's look at campaigns, candidates, media, and voters that convincingly argues that voters make informed logical choices. Samuel L. Popkin analyzes three primary campaigns--Carter in 1976; Bush and Reagan in 1980; and Hart, Mondale, and Jackson in 1984--to arrive at a new model of the way voters sort through commercials and sound bites to choose a candidate. Drawing on insights from economics and cognitive psychology, he convincingly demonstrates that, as trivial as campaigns often appear, they provide voters with a surprising amount of information on a candidate's views and skills. For all their shortcomings, campaigns do matter. "Professor Popkin has brought V.O. Key's contention that voters are rational into the media age. This book is a useful rebuttal to the cynical view that politics is a wholly contrived business, in which unscrupulous operatives manipulate the emotions of distrustful but gullible citizens. The reality, he shows, is both more complex and more hopeful than that."--David S. Broder, The Washington Post

Elements of reason : cognition, choice, and the bounds of rationality( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many social scientists want to explain why people do what they do. A barrier to constructing such explanations used to be a lack of information on the relationship between cognition and choice. Now, recent advances in cognitive science, economics, political science, and psychology have clarified this relationship. In Elements of Reason, eighteen scholars from across the social sciences use these advances to uncover the cognitive foundations of social decision making. They answer tough questions about how people see and process information and provide new explanations of how basic human needs, the environment, and past experiences combine to affect human choices. Elements of Reason is written for a broad audience and should be read by anyone for whom 'Why do people do what they do?' is an important question. It is the rare book that transforms abstract debates about rationality and reason into empirically relevant explanations of how people choose

CRACKUP : the republican implosion and the future of presidential politics by Samuel L Popkin( Book )

3 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2016, a businessman so discredited that he could no longer get a casino license or borrow money from an American bank was elected President of the United States of America. How did this happen? It is easy to mock and ridicule Donald Trump as if he is the problem. In fact, he is a symptom of a much larger issue that has been bedeviling the GOP for nearly two decades: an intraparty crackup of massive proportions. By "crackup," I mean a breakdown of the fragile alliances between coalitions within a party that prevents its leaders from developing goals they can deliver on when they control the White House and majorities in the House and Senate. This introductory chapter explains why party crackups are inevitable in a federal system with national money and local primaries. But this is the first time -- for either party - that no group within the party could create a synthesis of old orthodoxies and new realities that altered the party's direction enough to build a new consensus"--

CRISIS LEVEL AND CIVIL DEFENSE ATTITUDES by Samuel L Popkin( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comparative Survey analysis has been used to relate public opinions about Civil Defense to the level of international tension. Twelve clusters of similar questions from national surveys taken between 1952 and 1964 were analyzed to determine if there were any significant variations between surveys that could be accounted for by changes in the level of international tension. Clusters most significantly related to the tension level were Imminence of War and Home Preparations for Attack. In general it is concluded that it often is more important to have high continuity between surveys in questions asked and to have high flexibility in the timing of surveys
