Robert Shapiro

Columbia University

Robert Shapiro, Professor of Political Science at Columbia University, will use self-reported data on political ideology and party affiliation to examine the extent to which public opinion in the United States has split along party lines. He will go beyond previous studies to analyze public opinion data from 2006 and to assess the relationship between partisanship and ideological beliefs with respect to foreign policy issues.
