CSUSB professor coauthors article on why women are less likely to support U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders
March 12, 2020
Meredith Conroy, CSUSB associate professor of political science, and Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux, FiveThirtyEight staff writer, took a look at why women appear to be less likely than men to support U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders in his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.
“After a stint as the Democratic primary front-runner, Sen. Bernie Sanders’s revolution is rapidly stalling. After a series of surprising losses on Super Tuesday, he lost again in Michigan earlier this week, despite spending days campaigning across the state,” they wrote.
“In contest after contest, Sanders has struggled to make inroads with key Democratic constituencies — in particular, black voters and older voters. But there’s another trend that’s plagued him throughout the primary: He does poorly with women. According to aggregated exit polls from the states that have voted so far, Sanders’s support is 8 points lower among women than his support among men.”

CSUSB professor comments on the work of New York congressman fighting online extremism
March 12, 2020
A profile on U.S. Rep. Max Rose (D-New York), a freshman congressman who consistently presses tech companies on preventing while extremists from using their platforms to radicalize young people domestically and abroad, included a quote from Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s nonpartisan Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism.
Rose has been criticized by civil rights activists who want him to push for more restrictions, and from conservatives who worry that right-wing voices could be censored.
“It’s always easy to criticize the first gladiator in the arena,” said Levin.
Levin also said the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism has observed an increase in violent threats towards public officials, and Rose exemplifies the 'crest' of that. “We’re seeing an uptick in political violence and political intimidation going on now,” he said.

CSUSB professor discusses significance of U.S. Congress passing war powers resolution regarding military action against Iran
March 12, 2020
David Yaghoubian, CSUSB professor of history, appeared on a segment about the U.S. House of Representatives passing a resolution on March 11 that calls for an end to military hostilities against Iran without congressional authorization. The war powers measure passed 227 to 186, next heads to President Donald Trump's desk. The resolution amounts to a legal slap on the wrist for Trump, who is certain to veto the resolution.
Yaghoubian said that while the veto is expected, “it’s nevertheless a very positive step. Congress and the senate have once again voiced the importance of the founding fathers’ wisdom in not placing issues of war and peace in the hands of one individual.”
