About the Author

My name is Peter H. Lemieux, and I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science from MIT.  I taught both there and at the University of Rochester. Most of my courses and research focused on political behavior, particularly voting, in the US and other advanced democracies.  I also taught introductory and advanced courses in statistics for political scientists. Between 1986 and 1988 I worked for the Boston Globe as a polling consultant.
