Alastair Smith

New York University

Smith will investigate voting behavior and the ways parties solicit votes. He will build on existing formal models to argue that parties reward voting groups that offer them the greatest level of support. In this model, individual voters have much greater influence over the distribution of local rewards than over which party wins elections.
