Biography

Yanna Krupnikov integrates psychology and political science in order to identify points at which new information can have the most profound effect on the way people form political opinions, make political choices, and, ultimately, take political actions. Some of her research, which has been recently published in a book, argues that political independents really aren’t independent but are ashamed of both parties and so choose to claim independence rather than associate with Republicans or Democrats.
