Can Kanye West's announcement that he intends to run for president in the 2020 US election impact voter behavior?
Bowling Green State University researcher and political science expert David J. Jackson has focused his research on the links between young people’s entertainment and political preferences. He has also written extensively about organized labor’s campaign contribution strategies. His interests extend beyond the US to Canada, where his research has focused on entertainment and politics, as well as gambling policy.
Dr. Jackson is available to discuss the possible impact celebrity challengers may have on voter perception and behavior.
