Vincent Hutchings’s Curriculum Vitae (CV)
Professor Hutchings’ general interests include public opinion, elections, voting behavior, and African American politics. Professor Hutchings also studies how the size of the African American constituency in congressional districts can influence legislative responsiveness to Black interests. Finally, he is also interested in the ways that campaign communications can “prime” various group identities and subsequently affect candidate evaluations.
