While the New Hampshire Primary has now passed, it doesn’t mean that politics aren’t still at the forefront – particularly at Southern New Hampshire University. For those in political science degree programs, there’s much to be learned from the 2016 first-in-the-nation voting day.
SNHU Civic Scholar Dr. Dean Spiliotes draws on his vast political experience, as an observer, commentator and professor in political science degree programs, to offer his analysis of what transpired in New Hampshire during the 2016 presidential primary election on February 9.
In these videos, Spiliotes addresses what appealed most to the younger voting demographic, especially those who may have participated for the very first time. Did candidates campaign in the traditional fashion throughout the state – or has retail politics gone by the wayside? Hear what Spiliotes has to say – and consider whether a new style of politicking helped or hindered candidates in the primary.
Touching upon the preconceived notions national media may have with regard to the Granite State, Spiliotes explains the many faces of today’s New Hampshire and its voters.
The front-row seat to the nation’s most critical election every four years – along with dedicated attention to national, regional and local politics – enhances SNHU’s political science degree programs in myriad ways. From the expertise of respected faculty, like Spiliotes, to the inclusion of the latest information and lessons from ongoing political activity, the enthusiasm for politics is contagious at SNHU.
