Professor Jim Stimson is a world-leading international scholar of American politics, public opinion and its linkages with governance in Washington. He has won many prestigious awards, served on the editorial boards of leading US journals and is an excellent teacher and speaker. What are the longer-term dynamics underlying the 2012 outcome and then what therefore, does the outcome mean? Emphasis will be on longer-term movements in key determinants such as mood, partisanship and economic outcomes - and away from the day to day give and take that dominates most news coverage of elections. Two organizing questions are what the election foretells for future politics and whether or not the winner earned a mandate to act.
