Research: US Presidency
A primary focus of the research at the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies is the institution of the Presidency. Our work focuses both on relationships between the President and Congress as well as outside interests lobbying the Executive Branch. Additionally, CCPS scholars have studied the presidential campaigns to see what works, what does not, and what influences voters to cast their ballots one way or the other (or at all). CCPS scholars have written numerous books and articles examining these relationships and behaviors.
