BYU 2004 Election Panel available

In 2004 a group led by researchers at BYU gathered panel data relevant for us COPS folks. Maybe most interestingly, they did a specific sample of Ohio and oversamples of other battleground states. This could be a potentially useful (and less cliche) data set for secondary analysis, especially for those with an interest in Ohio politics or comparisons of media environments. Check it out:

ICA 2007 Call for Papers

The 2007 ICA conference is in San Francisco May 24-28. The call for papers has been issued. See the call here. The deadline for submission is Nov 1, 2006.

Is Columbus the center of the political universe? Jon Stewart apparently thinks so...

According to Gongwer News Service's Ohio Report:

Indecision Ohio: It's official: the Buckeye State is now firmly ensconced in the national conscious as a major player in this year's midterm election cycle. Why else would Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" plan to record a week's worth of installments from the Ohio State University campus in Columbus?

Under the banner of "Indecision 2006," the politically-minded half-hour show of self-described "fake news" will stage its "Battlefield Ohio: The Daily Show's Midwest Midterm Midtacular" at OSU's Roy Bowen Theatre. The Oct. 30-Nov. 2 segments will be taped earlier on those dates for airing at 11 p.m.

Comedy Central said in announcing the show's plans, "Host Jon Stewart will be joined by his team of award-seeking commentators and correspondents as they seek to answer the age-old question: Just what the hell is a buckeye?"

It will be the fifth road trip for the series, which previously taped shows in Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
