Description

The 2016 and 2018 elections are over, but looking ahead to the 2019–2020 election cycle, the debate over the fairness and accuracy of our electoral process has never been more contentious. Hacking, fake news, a "rigged system," voter ID challenges, Super PACs, and an Electoral College defying the popular vote count all lead to a common question and concern: Is this any way to run a democratic election?

New to the Seventh Edition:

  • New data and timely illustrations from the 2016 and 2018 elections, looking ahead to 2020 election.
  • The growing importance of social media (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter) and its impact, good and bad, on recent campaigns.
  • Foreign interference in the 2016 and 2018 national elections.
  • The integrity of campaign communications―hacking, rumoring, instantaneous news, and the effect of fact-checking.
  • Money: the role of Super PACs and billionaire donors; the impact of campaign spending on the candidates and on election outcomes.
  • New connections between the "Did you know that" chapter introductions to the exercises at the end.
  • More online references in the suggested readings.
