research overview

  • Professor Bickers studies subnational politics and campaigns and elections. He has examined the impact of economic performance on presidential election outcomes at the state level. He also is examining the impact of federal distributive policies on politics at the local level, in particular the choices of local office holders to seek higher offices. He is co-authoring a book that focuses on electoral and mobility options that citizens have for registering discontents over policy performance at the local level and what this means for politicians who seek to act strategically.
