This project examines how changes in social conditions (e.g., state of the economy, risks, and foreign threats) and information about policies and political actors (e.g., gender, campaign pledges, and facial expressions of political candidates) affect people's decisions and behavior by conducting opinion polls, experiments, and text data analyses.
