After Wallace : the 1986 contest for governor and political change in Alabama by Patrick R Cotter( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All Alabama elections are colorful, but the 1986 gubernatorial contest may trump them all for its sheer strangeness. With the retirement of an aging and ill George Wallace, both the issues and candidates contending for the office were able to set the course of Alabama politics for generations to follow. Whereas the Wallace regimes were particular to Alabama, and the gubernatorial campaign was conducted in a partial vacuum with his absence, Alabama also experienced a wave of partisan realignment. A once solidly Democratic South was undergoing a tectonic political shift as white voters in l
The new politics of the old South : an introduction to Southern politics by Joseph D Giammo( )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now in its fifth edition, The New Politics of the Old South is the best and most comprehensive analysis and history of political behaviors and shifting demographics in America's southern states. Edited by leading scholars Charles S. Bullock III and Mark J. Rozell, this book has been updated through the 2012 elections to provide the most accurate and useful snapshot of the state of southern politics, and the ways in which they have developed over time. The southern electorate is a fascinating, dynamic body politic, and the study of its evolution is paramount to understanding the broader political developments occurring at a national level. While accessible to any interested reader, this edition illuminates the South's essential and growing role in the study, and the story, of American politics."--

Supplemental Employment among Alabama Teachers. Occasional Papers in Educational Policy Analysis Paper No. 412 by Patrick R Cotter( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Survey results document patterns of, and reasons for, supplemental employment among Alabama public school teachers. For background information, the respondents' opinions of education and other public services in Alabama, of teaching as a career, and of teacher salaries are also examined. Following a description of the survey process, in which 504 teachers were interviewed by telephone, generalizations about the data are presented. Findings on the following topics are reported: (1) teachers' satisfaction with education and other services; (2) their satisfaction with teaching as a profession; (3) their satisfaction with teacher salaries in general and with their own salaries; (4) employment patterns of all teachers, of those who had held supplemental jobs within the past year, and of those who had held supplemental jobs but not within the past year; and (5) respondents' plans for the upcoming summer of 1984. Data on employment patterns in the total population and the two subgroups include, where applicable, reasons for taking or not taking second jobs; group characteristics; number and types of jobs held; length of time, time of year, and number of hours worked; and amount or percentage of income earned through supplemental employment. Following the narrative presentation, two sets of tables provide detailed breakdowns of survey responses. (MCG)

Active and passive indicators of public opinion : assessing the call-in poll by Patrick R Cotter( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study of call-in poll participants indicates that although such participants are generally similar - in socio-demographics - to the population as a whole, they are more opionionated than are telephone survey respondents. The study confirms that call-in polls and surveys of the population do not necessarily produce, similar information concerning public opinion and that decision makers need to be sensitive to the intensity of opinion held by voters
