Daniel FlynnPre-doctoral Research Fellow at the Ford Center for Global Citizenship

D.J. studies public opinion and representation in the United States. His research examines the influence of political misinformation—verifiably false claims about politics—on democratic processes. His dissertation uses experiments to isolate the effects of misinformation on the public’s policy preferences and on representative-constituent interactions. Other assorted projects examine preferences for bipartisanship in Congress, values and economic policy preferences, and comparative political behavior. He also studies experimental and statistical methodology.
