Brian TaylorBrian Taylor, professor and chair of political science, was featured on WAER's segment "SU Maxwell Prof and Author of Book on Vladimir Putin not Surprised at Undemocratic Russian Election." " . . . in Russia the results were boring, predictable and the favorite candidate won," Taylor says. "So in that sense it wasn’t really like an election because in a democracy you have certain rules and uncertain outcomes. And in Russia you have uncertain rules and certain outcomes, which is Putin is going to win." 03/21/18
