Fri, 23 Sep 2016 10:18:53 -0400

From my new Upshot column (co-authored with Kyle Dropp): America’s most prominent birther has finally disavowed the myth he helped to create. Will Donald J. Trump’s concession affect the public’s belief about whether President Obama was born in the United...

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 14:05:14 -0400

New NYT: Trump's strategy on crime

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:38:42 -0400

From my new Upshot column: In declaring himself "the law and order candidate" in his convention speech Thursday night, Donald Trump officially made crime one of his core issues. This emphasis is relatively new, and it's strategic.

New NYT: The Clinton case in context

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 17:44:41 -0400

From my new Upshot column: The F.B.I. recommendation on Tuesday not to file charges against Hillary Clinton for what the director James Comey called her “extremely careless” email practices has set off a debate over whether there was any partisan...

New NYT: Don't assume Trump voters naïve

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 10:04:26 -0400

From my new Upshot column: Donald Trump keeps making promises that experts don’t think he can possibly fulfill. It might seem that he has people fooled by his implausible claims, which include pledges to make Mexico pay for a border...

New NYT: Not time for change to Trump?

Tue, 10 May 2016 09:41:09 -0400

From my new Upshot column: With Donald Trump’s unfavorable ratings at record levels, the Republican Party’s prospects for taking back the White House already seem bleak. But its chances may be even worse yet. The doubts Mr. Trump has raised...

New NYT: Hillary Clinton's flawed message

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 10:19:00 -0500

From my new Upshot column: Political campaigns are supposed to promise hope and change, but Hillary Clinton is not offering enough of either — one of the most important reasons that she barely won Iowa and lost by a wide...

New NYT: The downside of dynastic politics

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 17:06:22 -0500

From my new Upshot column: Why have Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton struggled so much during this campaign? It might seem as if the public is weary of Bushes and Clintons and has turned against dynastic politics, but voters don’t...

New NYT: The obstacles to a Bloomberg win

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 13:05:20 -0500

From my new Upshot column: The dream of a centrist third-party presidential candidate will never die. Michael Bloomberg, the media billionaire and former New York City mayor, is once again considering running for president, but how broad is his appeal?...
