Political science lecturer Dan Birdsong talks about Ohio: Is it in play this year? What are the top issues? What will it take to win Ohio? He also talks about candidates' use of Twitter in their campaigns.
Bio: Dan Birdsong is a lecturer at the University of Dayton, teaching courses on American Politics, the Presidency, Campaigns and Elections, Media and Politics, and Public Opinion and Political Behavior. He has a background in polling and policy research. He is currently researching how people consume news in an era of multiple sources and new media. Do people consume a variety of news sources or do they find news that fits their thinking? Is it possible to have a national discussion on any given issue when the sources of information often disagree? Research on how and where people get their news will help create a better understanding of public opinion. He is also tracking presidential candidates' use of Twitter. Birdsong received his Ph.D. from the University of Cincinnati where he worked from 2005-09 at the Institute for Policy Research on the Ohio Poll, the Ohio Health Issues Poll and the Greater Cincinnati Survey.
A perennial battleground state, Ohio is a must-win on the road to the White House. No Republican has ever won the election without carrying the Buckeye State, and a Democrat has only won twice without Ohio in the last 116 years.
For insight on Battleground Ohio, look no further than the University of Dayton. Our faculty are available for media interviews on a wide range of topics sure to be hot this 2012 election cycle: The economy, immigration, environmental policy, polls, campaigns, voting laws, religion and more.
