The USC Schwarzenegger Institute is partnering with Open Primaries to present: Research Roundup: How top two open primaries are disrupting politics as usual in California…and beyond with USC Schwarzenegger Institute Academic Director Dr. Christian Grose and Dr. Charles Munger, Jr. Grose and Munger are the authors of several groundbreaking studies on the impact of the adoption of top two open primaries in California in 2010. Munger will discuss his recently published research that concludes that the reform was successful, resulting in increased electoral competition and increased voter participation. Grose will highlight his new research forthcoming in the June 2020 issue of the Journal of Political Institutions and Political Economy that shows the top-two primary leads to less extreme elected officials and candidates who are more responsive to voters. Read a preprint of Grose’s paper here.
