  • Gadarian speaks to Associated Press about mask mandates

    Iowa is among at least eight Republican-led states that have limited the ability of school boards to impose mask mandates. More recently, arguments about masks heated up after federal Judge Robert Pratt blocked enforcement of the mask mandate ban, leading several school boards to require masks in their schools. Shana Gadarian, professor and chair of political science, says it’s important to weigh the motivation of politicians questioning public health measures proven to slow virus spread. "Politicians are trying to win reelection. They’re trying to keep their approval ratings up," she says.

    Gadarian speaks to FiveThirtyEight about partisanship, COVID

    Polls and vaccination rates have shown Republicans are less likely to be vaccinated, and more likely to say they don’t plan to get the shot than Democrats. Based on research she and her colleagues have been conducting, Shana Gadarian says there has been a partisan split on all health behaviors (not only the vaccine but also mask wearing, hand washing, visiting one’s doctor) throughout the pandemic. "Partisanship is not the sole determinant, but it is the strongest, most consistent determinant, even controlling for age, education, where people are living, how many COVID-19 cases are in the area," says Gadarian.

    Reeher quoted in Eagle Tribune article on 9/11 attacks

    There's little doubt that the U.S. and the world was forever changed on September 11, 2001. At the time of the terror attacks, recalls Professor Grant Reeher, director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute, "There was great hope and expectation it would have a profound impact on our civil life and lead to a recapturing of some of what we lost in the decades leading up to it, that it would be a wake-up call for people to become more engaged." But, he says, "We fell very short of attaining the civic hopes that moment generated." Read more in the Eagle Tribune article, "In 20 years since 9/11 attacks, nation remains forever changed."
