Dr. Weinschenk’s research focuses on political behavior in the United States. More specifically, he is interested in understanding (1) why some people are very involved in politics while others are not, (2) how psychological and biological traits influence political behavior, and (3) how campaigns influence voters during elections. To date, Dr. Weinschenk has published about 50 peer-reviewed articles in journals such as the British Journal of Political Science, Political Research Quarterly, Political Behavior, American Politics Research, and the Journal of Public Opinion, Parties & Elections.
