Research projects I engage in explore when and why actors in the sociopolitical system respond to information cues. There are two components to this research agenda. The first explores the causes and consequences of alterations to the stylistic techniques employed by the president in public remarks. The second involves the analysis of whether uncertainty about the current and prospective qualities of government policies with implications on the economy can change the opinions or behaviors of the mass public. My research integrates literature from multiple disciplines to provide evidence that decision-makers are limited information processors, and will respond only to specific types of cues in the sociopolitical environment.
