2016 Elections and Presidential Mandates with Julia Azari (WORT’s A Public Affair)

January 6, 2016 Leave a comment

How are the traditional political science explanations of presidential primaries holding up?

What should we be looking for now that we are closing in on the actual casting of votes?

How do new presidents try to claim a mandate?

What should we make of President Obama’s emotional announcement about taking executive action on gun regulations?

I was delighted to discuss these issues and more with the great Julia Azari, Marquette University political scientist and ace blogger for Mischiefs of Faction at Vox. You can listen by going to the WORT archive and listening to the A Public Affair broadcast from January 6, 2016. Julia was a terrific guest and the calls from listeners were interesting as well. Enjoy!
