Unpacking the 2022 Midterm Election Results


Where did Americans get their news on election night, how did polls perform, and which factors led to a split Congress?

IPR scholars unpacked these questions and the election results during IPR's 2022 midterm elections panel, moderated by IPR political scientist James Druckman. Media scholar Stephanie Edgerly analyzed how audiences consumed news about the election, communications and policy scholar Erik Nisbet discussed polling data and misinformation, and political scientist Laurel Harbridge-Yong broke down what the results might mean for bipartisanship in the next Congress.

Of Boys and Men

Why are men now doing worse than women in terms of education and other life outcomes? And how can helping men actually turn into a push for more gender equality? Richard Reeves, a Brookings' scholar and the father of three boys, spoke about his latest book, Of Boys and Men: Why the Modern Male Is Struggling, Why It Matters, and What to Do About It, with IPR Director and economist Diane Whitmore Schanzenbach.

Connecting Social Science Research to Critical Societal Issues

Over the summer, 44 Northwestern undergraduate students worked with IPR faculty in the Summer Undergraduate Research Assistants (SURA) program to gain real-world social policy research experience. SURA is one of the longest-running undergraduate research programs at the University.

Faculty Research in Brief

New research from IPR faculty explores racial and ethnic differences in eating duration and meal timing, whether education protects against job loss during an economic downturn, and how the changing gender demographics of science teams affects research performance. 

A Slight Majority of Americans Approve of the FBI's Search of Mar-a-Lago

A recent report by IPR political scientist James Druckman and his colleagues shows that a slight majority of Americans (51%) approve of the search of former president Trump's Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, but a partisan gap exists between those who support and oppose it.

Faculty Insights

"We are concerned that the mystique of poll averaging is yet another example of big data mythologizing, which mistakenly asserts that obtaining more data overcomes problems that can really only be addressed by obtaining better data."
