Here, I will blog. Basically, I hope to follow in the tradition of The Monkey Cage, Brendan Nyhan, Enik Rising, Mischiefs of Faction, and others to use my expertise in political communication and public opinion to occasionally post about journalism and politics from the social science perspective. I will not be as regular of a contributor to the marketplace of ideas as those fine folks, but I’ll be around.
