Newswise — Elections expert Dr. Steven Greene is available to provide insight and perspective on the Obama and McCain campaigns, public opinion and the media as we come into the home stretch of what will be a historic presidential election.

Greene, an associate professor of political science at North Carolina State University, studies elections and voting behavior, including partisanship and public opinion. Greene has published extensively in the field, and has been featured on CBS' The Early Show, NPR's All Things Considered, and in print media outlets including USA Today, and The Times (UK).

Greene says that this is "shaping up to be a good Democratic year," which means that states which were previously assumed to vote Republican - such as North Carolina - will likely be in play for Obama.

Video clips of interviews with Dr. Greene are available at and
