"We’ve recommended that the medical experts be up front and center, and the political leaders take a step back and defer to the doctors and to the head of the health agencies, because that’s who anxious people want to hear from," says Shana Gadarian, associate professor of political science and co-author of Anxious Politics: Democratic Citizenship in a Threatening World. "They don’t want to hear as much from the political leaders, particularly when they think that the performance to date has been pretty bad, which we see in the polling." Gadarian was interviewed for the Vox article "How anxiety changes political behavior." 04/28/20
