Women have swung toward Democrats since the Dobbs decision
Sept. 28, 2022
Meredith Conroy, CSUSB associate professor of political science, co-wrote an article with FiveThirtyEight staff writer Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux on how the recent Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v.

Wade and ended the constitutional right to abortion — might be a winner in a Republican primary, but early signs are that it makes it harder for GOP candidates to win a general election.

CSUSB professor comments on jury seated in Oath Keepers Jan. 6 seditious conspiracy trial
The Washington Post
Sept. 30, 2022
Brian Levin, director of the CSUSB Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, was quoted in an article about the jury being seated in the trial of Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes and other members of the extremist group who face seditious conspiracy and other charges in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The makeup of the jury presents a watershed confrontation with reality for Rhodes’s radical, “insurrectionist doctrine,” which holds that the Constitution’s right to bear arms extends not just to “militia” or the National Guard but to private citizens, and further that individuals have the right to violently oppose the government for personal or subjective reasons, Levin said.

Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study Hate and Extremism, was quoted in an article examining the increase in anti-Asian hate crimes, how such incidents may be underreported, and that there is no uniform procedure to track them from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
“Here in California, a bill that would make hate crime procedures and policies mandatory died. We hope to repeat that again with a bill the following year, but we need a variety of messages,” says Levin.
