In the past decades the number of floating voters has been on the rise in Western democracies. An increasing number of voters change their party preference not only between elections, but also within election campaigns. The aim of Sabine Geers’s research is to improve our understanding of the impact of media on electoral volatility. More specifically, she examines how different kinds of election news coverage (of issues and polls, for example) influence different types of electoral volatility.
