Student Management Report Nick Fedorochko ’19 and Alec Lopata ’19


tudent management started off the semester early, getting back in advance of classes to begin preparing for the hiring process. This year we innovated and improved upon the hiring process, reaching out to students in new ways to inform them about the Research Assistant opportunity. We also hosted a résumé and cover letter workshop, at the suggestion of former Student Manager Melissa Muller ’18, which was widely attended and wellreceived. Overall, we experienced more than a 70% increase in applications over last year, and felt that the quality of the applications was its highest in recent memory. We hired 11 students, composed of nine first year students and two second year students. Our new hires come from a variety of backgrounds with exposure to state and local politics from California, Texas, Louisiana, Iowa, Colorado, and Connecticut. We are excited to watch them develop as researchers and students, and are thrilled to be able to offer them a robust new hire training curriculum. We owe particular thanks to this year’s New Hire Manager, Bryn Miller ’19 for being so helpful in our hiring process, and for arranging a great curriculum for this year’s incoming class. Returning Research Assistants have been staffed on projects, and we are inspired by the work they have been doing. This semester, the Rose Institute has made some changes to the project management process, including the creation of project manager “town halls” where project managers can collaborate, coordinate, and communicate with institutional team managers and student management. Project managers are also using an openly-distributed master project calendar to ensure they meet deadlines and that our communications and design teams can manage their workload more efficiently. Video Voter has been well-received, and we are excited by the high quality of the videos and the research behind them. Our communications team has been proactive in marketing them to students, the media, and advocacy organizations, and we look forward to measuring their impact as we approach the election. Aside from Video Voter, the Rose Institute has also released a set of papers on federalism under the Trump administration, on the tribal courts system, and on obstacles to single-payer healthcare in California. Some projects that we are excited about include Redistricting, which has a significantly larger team ahead of the 2020 census and subsequent redistricting, and Competitive Districts, which is on track to release a white paper on the 2016 election cycle by the end of the semester. We are happy to see the results of Prop. 64 research in the Inland Empire Outlook , and are thrilled to announce student interest in developing projects on the cost of healthcare in California, and on fiscal analysis. Student management is excited for the rest of our tenure to unfold, and looks forward to continuing to offer our students an unparalleled research experience at Claremont McKenna while making a meaningful impact on public policy in California.


Miller Texas Research Update Charlie Harris ’19

ssociate Director Kenneth Miller spent the 2017-18 academic year on sabbatical as a visiting scholar at the John Goodwin Tower Center for Political Studies at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. His research was funded by the Smith Richardson Foundation. CMC is committed to supporting the research of faculty members, and part of that commitment is allowing them to take sabbaticals so that they can focus exclusively on their academic work. Prof. Miller’s primary research has focused on the political development of California as it has become the leading progressive state in the country, and his sabbatical gave him an opportunity to add a comparative dimension to that work. Since Texas is the leading conservative state, he hoped the contrast between the two would help illuminate what sets states on particular political trajectories. Prof. Miller made the most of his time in the Lone Star State by immersing himself in its culture and history. He crisscrossed the state and visited Austin, San Antonio, Houston, El Paso, the West Texas oil fields, Hill Country, and the Pan Handle. As he toured Texas, he met with prominent political individuals from both parties. Although he was based in Dallas, he also made plenty of trips to Austin to interview government leaders including the Speaker of the House, the Governor’s Chief of Staff, and other prominent staff members. In addition to his field work, Prof. Miller conducted archival research to understand the history of the state and find data about its political evolution. On a personal note, Prof. Miller’s wife, Kimberly, has family living in Dallas so he enjoyed spending time with them as well. Prof. Miller is now writing a book based on his research in Texas. The first half of the book looks at why California and Texas ended up on divergent political paths. He uses historical research combined with contemporary analysis to examine potential causes. The second half takes a look at policy priorities for the two states and compares their approach on issues like taxation, organized labor, energy, the environment, and social issues. The book is schedule to be published by the end of 2019. After a productive time away from Claremont, Prof. Miller is excited to back at the Rose and is excited for the year ahead.


Conversation with Professor Sinclair Lindsay Burton ’19


he Rose Institute congratulates Andrew Sinclair on his return to CMC. Professor Sinclair graduated CMC in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and Government. He then went on to earn both his Master’s and Ph.D. in Social Science from the California Institute of Technology. Professor Sinclair then taught on the faculty of the NYU Warner Graduate School of Public Service and served as both as their Director of Undergraduate Studies and the Quantitative Methods Curriculum Coordinator. His research explores American Politics and Political Methodology.

Q: Are you enjoying the experience of teaching at your alma mater? I am delighted -absolutely delighted -to be at CMC. I had a really good experience atP NYU, with tremendous colleagues and great students. For many reasons, though, this was the right place for me, and it is fun to be back.

Q: You had an interesting dual major while you were a student. How has your background in mathematics influenced your research and teaching? Around the time I was getting close to finishing high school and starting to think about plans for college, my oldest sister -Betsy Sinclair -had recently started a PhD program at Caltech. Math was my least favorite subject in school, starting in about second grade. Still, Betsy showed me a bit of what she was learning in her political science courses and explained that if I wanted to get to do that, I'd better be a math major like she had been. So I signed up to be a math major. As usual, she was right. While quantitative approaches are not the only way to study interesting problems in political science, they are certainly useful. I think quantitative tools help me get better answers to the questions I find important. I am still by far the worst mathematician in the family (my other sister, Laura Sinclair, holds a PhD in physics), but I did eventually learn to like math. At the Wagner School at NYU, I taught both graduate and undergraduate quantitative methods courses for public policy -and finally started to actually enjoy it. My own experiences as a student, though, continue to inform the way I teach quantitative subjects. Since math did not come easily or naturally to me, I think it is a lot easier to relate with the next generation of students who also find this material important but hard. Q: What sorts of research projects are you currently working on? At the moment, Betsy Sinclair (WashU) and I, along with Michael Alvarez (Caltech) and Christian Grose (USC), are writing a book about California elections. This is building on some earlier research I did, including some projects with Ian O'Grady (Rose Alumnus, CMC '15). In 2012, California switched to a "top-two" election system -yielding this year two Democrats on the ballot for the November U.S. Senate election. I'm interested in how changes to election laws can impact the whole of the public policy process. Broadly, I'm still working on the same questions that brought me to CMC as a student: why is it so hard for the government to make good policy choices? What sorts of changes to the rules would help make government function, in some way, better? These are some of the great questions of political science, so that should keep me fairly busy. Q: I know that you just got back, but I am curious. What is your dream course to teach here at CMC? Someday I'd love to run a course on political simulations. I've been working on building an international relations board game (for years) which simulates the political challenges leading up to the Second World War. It's not really my main area of academic effort at the moment, but this would be fun to do. I did teach a small history and politics seminar at NYU on this as I was building the last edition of the game (because I was working on the game), which made it seem really possible to eventually do it.


Project Updates

Competitive Districts


- Sophia Helland ’20

- Rachel Alaynick ’20

This semester, the Competitive Districts Project is analyzing 2016 election data from California Assembly and Senate races. We have finished collecting data from the 2016 cycle and plan to finish the white paper by the end of the year. The project will continue to examine campaign expenditures and independent expenditures, and it will also look at contribution data for the first time. The project relies on data from the Cal-Access campaign finance database, which is publicly available on the California Secretary of State’s website. We will be looking to answer questions about how donations are spent, which professions are the most likely to donate money to a campaign, whether outside organizations are more likely to spend money on Democrats or Republicans, and create a spending timeline of campaign expenditures.

The redistricting project is wrapping up its analysis of federal gerrymandering standards, which will result in a report and one-page fact sheet. These materials will cover how the standards have been formed through court cases and legislation. Then, the redistricting team will project population growth in California and analyze how the population changes will affect the size and number of districts. Following this report, the Rose will host a webinar series that details statutory changes to the Independent Redistricting Commission and how to navigate those changes.

Video Voter

True Time Served

- Will Frankel ’21

- Sophia Helland ’20

Video Voter: A Guide to California Ballot Measures is designed to help voters make informed decisions on each of the measures on the California general election ballot. The non-partisan project explains each proposition with an educational video and a brief written analysis. Both make clear what a yes or no vote means, present major arguments from both proponents and opponents, and identify main supporters and opponents. The videos are uploaded to the Rose Institute's website and Claremont McKenna's YouTube channel with both Spanish and English subtitles.

Last semester, the True Time Served project focused on collecting data about the average length of stay in local jails in order to create a more accurate estimate about the true length of time individuals are incarcerated for a particular crime. Prison time served and probation are reported by all states, but there is currently no national estimate for jail time served. We found data on jail time served for several large states, including Pennsylvania, Tennessee, New York, and California. This semester, we are beginning our calculations of true time served, taking into account probation, jail time served, and prison time served.
