From the Publisher

In this book, Dr. Murdock analyzes every presidential election in U.S. history, focusing on how political parties emerged and learned how to target Electoral College votes. The author describes how political movements, along with national and international events, often determined who would become president of the United States. Based on that historical analysis, Professor Murdock discusses the upcoming 2012 presidential campaign between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney and predicts the results state by state. His conclusion is that Obama will win the popular vote by a large margin, but lose in the Electoral College.

The Supreme Court’s New Modesty

THE PLAN, HATCHED BY SENATE Republicans after the unexpected death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February, was to make the presidential election into a referendum on the future of the Supreme Court. But the court has not cooperated. Given multiple chances to stir up a ruckus at the end of the term, the eight Justices used a mixture of strategic silence and status quo rulings to muffle what could have been an explosive finish. They did not gut the right to choose an abortion, nor did they write an end to affirmative action. Where they were evenly split—as they were on President Obama’s use of
