Kyle Dropp is a Ph.D. Candidate at Stanford University with a focus in American Politics and Quantitative Methods. He studies how elites influence mass public opinion and behavior through strategic rhetoric and the manipulation of electoral institutions. For his dissertation, he engaged three prominent means of elite influence -- televised advertising, political endorsements and election administration policies -- that shape voters' attitudes and behavior. Examples of his published work can be found in the Journal of Politics, where he examines the broader interplay between citizens and elites.
