About Matthew L. Jacobsmeier

My research focuses on the process of representation in American politics. Several of my current projects explore how social group identifications such as race and religious affiliation affect citizens’ perceptions of candidates’ ideologies. I also do research in the field of state politics.

I teach courses in American politics (including public opinion and political behavior), research methodology, religion and politics, and racial and ethnic politics. I received my graduate training at the University of Rochester.
