Studying Congressional and Gubernatorial Campaigns
Alvarez, R. Michael
National Election Studies
This paper was presented at the recent NES Congressional Elections Research and Development Conference. I argue that the NES ought to redesign the congressional election survey so that campaigns can be studied in more depth. I provide four empirical examples from my recent research which demonstrate some of the directions the NES can take. I conclude with a series of proposals for changes to the NES survey instrument, new questions which could be included in the NES congressional election studies, and discussion about the integration of contextual data with the NES survey data.
