PhD student Jeremy Saks co-authors two publications

E.W. Scripps School of Journalism studetn Jeremy Saks has co-authored two publications — one article recently published in an academic journal, and another in press.

The first was published in the Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media (Volume 60, Issue 2). It is “Dialed In: Continuous Response Measures in Televised Political Debates and Their Effect on Viewers” and was authored by Saks; Jordan Compton, instructor at Southwest Baptist University; Scripps PhD student Ashley Hopkin;, and Kareem El Damanhoury, PhD student at Georgia State University. The research examines the influence of including a real-time polling tracker during televised debate coverage. The findings showed that individuals who viewed a senatorial debate with tracker data that favored one candidate or the other were more likely to state that they would vote for the corresponding candidate in a forced choice scenario (like this).
