The Emergence of a Latino Political Ethnicity: 1990 to the Era of Trump
Alan Yang examines how ordinary U.S. Latinos of different national origin ancestries have become an increasingly cohesive panethnic political group since the time of the 1990 Latino National Political Survey. He argues that this longer term trend towards increasing convergence across national origin has been both reinforced and disrupted on questions related to politically relevant sentiments and perceptions two years into the Trump presidency.

Religious Parties and Ideological Change: A Comparison of Iran and Turkey
Mohammad Ayatollahi Tabaar and A.Kadir Yildirim adopt a political economy approach to examine the multidirectional paths that ideological change within religious parties can take. Comparing the theocratic and secular political systems in Iran and Turkey, they show how “political” Islam leads to “social” and “civil” Islam and reverses authoritarianism.  

Perception and Misperception in U.S.-China Relations
Andrew Scobell assesses the condition of contemporary U.S.-China relations. He concludes that bilateral ties are best characterized as full-blown great-power rivalry with the likelihood of heightened intensity and persistent hostility due to the powerful impact of pervasive misperceptions and enduring negative images of each other.

Loyalists and Switchers: Characterizing Voters’ Responses to Donald Trump’s Campaign and Presidency

Using two original surveys, they find that attitudes on race and immigration, populism and authoritarianism, and the nation’s and their own economic well-being are all associated with loyalty to and switching from this divisive president.
