Abstract: For decades, the Democrats have been viewed as the party of the poor with the
Republicans representing the rich. In recent years, however, a reverse pattern has
been seen, with Democrats showing strength in the richer “blue” states in the Northeast
and West, and Republicans dominating in the “red” states in the middle of the
country. Through multilevel analysis of individual-level survey data and county- and
state-level demographic and electoral data, we reconcile these patterns. We find that
there has indeed been a trend toward richer areas supporting the Democrats—but
within states and counties, and overall, the Democrats retain the support of the poorer
voters. This pattern has confused many political commentators into falsely believing
that Republicans represent poorer voters than Democrats.

"In state declines vs out of state increases: An analysis of how state level anti-abortion legislation influences the incidence of abortion in neighboring states." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2018-10-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p361681_index.html>

Abstract: Many academic and policy studies provide evidence that state level restrictions on abortion, including public funding restrictions, parental involvement laws, and informed consent laws, reduce the number of abortions that take place within the boundaries of a given state. However, it is possible that women are circumventing these laws by seeking abortions in states where the laws are less restrictive. In this study, I will make use of a comprehensive time series cross sectional dataset of state abortion rates. This will allow me to analyze the extent to which these in-state abortion declines are offset by abortion increases in neighboring states.

Abstract: There is considerable variation in state-level poverty rates. This paper investigates two potential reasons: the demographic composition of each state and state-level differences in the relationship between demography and poverty. Drawing from a theoretical framework designed by Brady et al. (forthcoming), we estimate state-specific penalties and prevalences associated with four major poverty risk factors: single motherhood, low education, early family formation, and joblessness. By measuring poverty before and after transfers and taxes, we are able to quantify the role of the safety net in reducing the impact of the four major risks. Using data from the Current Population Survey, we find that the safety net reduces both prevalence and penalty effects. Consistent with Brady et al., we find that post-transfer penalties vary more than prevalences across states. After controlling for the demographic composition of each state, we find that post-transfer poverty rates are positively correlated with state-specific penalties for three risk factors: single motherhood, low education, and joblessness. For any given risk in any given state, our models suggest that a standard deviation reduction in the size of the penalty will have a larger effect on the poverty rate than a standard deviation reduction in risk prevalence.
