Professor Gregory A. Huber (with Seth J. Hill, Dept of Political Science, UCSD and Daniel J. Hopkins, Dept of Political Science, University  of Pennsylvania), have been awarded the best article prize from APSA’s Migration and Citizenship section this year for their article “Local demographic changes and US presidential voting, 2012 to 2016”.

Abstract:  “This paper considers whether local demographic changes in the United States were associated with pro-Republican shifts between 2012 and 2016, when the Republican presidential candidate was especially outspoken in opposition to immigration. By showing that demographic changes were not associated with shifts toward the Republican, this research indicates that local demographic changes are not on their own increasing support for anti-immigration candidates.”
