Michael G. Miller joined Barnard’s faculty in 2014. Professor Miller studies American elections, parties, and political behavior. His research is particularly focused on three broad topics: How people respond to changes in rules governing elections, elite political behavior (candidates, legislators, and local party chairs), and mass political behavior. He is particularly interested in election law and administration. Professor Miller teaches classes in these substantive areas, as well as in applied statistics and data science.
I think analytics have become political reporting. I think the richness of data that we saw exploding in 2008 with the discussion of polls thats come from certain corners of the public opinion moving through to the way campaigns are now thinking about voters.
