The Nov. 4 General Election is just days away, and it seems everyone has an eye on the races.
“Elections aren’t just about politics,” says Teenie Matlock, an assistant professor of cognitive science at the university. “Elections have a lot to do with how people think and feel about the candidates and the world around them at the present time.”
In addition to Matlock’s perspective on how words and images in campaigns affect the minds of the masses, UC Merced has a handful of other elections experts available to the media. They are:
Tom Hansford (political science);
Shawn Kantor (economics);
Nathan Monroe (political science);
Stephen Nicholson (political science)
