1. New, Michael. "In state declines vs out of state increases: An analysis of how state level anti-abortion legislation influences the incidence of abortion in neighboring states." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2018-05-26 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p361681_index.html>

Abstract: Many academic and policy studies provide evidence that state level restrictions on abortion, including public funding restrictions, parental involvement laws, and informed consent laws, reduce the number of abortions that take place within the boundaries of a given state. However, it is possible that women are circumventing these laws by seeking abortions in states where the laws are less restrictive. In this study, I will make use of a comprehensive time series cross sectional dataset of state abortion rates. This will allow me to analyze the extent to which these in-state abortion declines are offset by abortion increases in neighboring states.

"Rich State, Poor State; Red State, Blue State: Who's Voting for Whom in Presidential Elections?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Midwest Political Science Association, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, Illinois, Apr 07, 2005 <Not Available>. 2018-05-26 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p85171_index.html>

Abstract: For decades, the Democrats have been viewed as the party of the poor with the
Republicans representing the rich. In recent years, however, a reverse pattern has
been seen, with Democrats showing strength in the richer “blue” states in the Northeast
and West, and Republicans dominating in the “red” states in the middle of the
country. Through multilevel analysis of individual-level survey data and county- and
state-level demographic and electoral data, we reconcile these patterns. We find that
there has indeed been a trend toward richer areas supporting the Democrats—but
within states and counties, and overall, the Democrats retain the support of the poorer
voters. This pattern has confused many political commentators into falsely believing
that Republicans represent poorer voters than Democrats.

3. Metzgar, Emily. "Blogs and State Politics: State-Focused Blogs in the United States" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the APSA 2008 Annual Meeting, Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Massachusetts, Aug 28, 2008 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2018-05-26 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p280665_index.html>

Abstract: Employing data collected in an online survey targeting individuals who maintain blogs focused on politics in American states, this study examines the question of who blogs and why in state capitals around the country. Grounded in the literature of political communication and democratic engagement, this study offers a profile of state-level bloggers. Discussion includes consideration of blogger responses concerning political engagement, political cynicism, media criticism and political engagement. Results suggest that state-focused bloggers look much like their counterparts at the national level, with a few noteworthy differences.

4. Cobetto, Joseph. "Voting in Red States, Voting in Blue States: Absentee Voting, Political Culture, and State-Level Electoral Competitiveness" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2018-05-26 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p364340_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Over the past decade, there has been much talk in the media about 'red' and 'blue' states; states that are electorally uncompetitive in presidential elections. Even with recent efforts to create national standards for voting machinery and personnel, states still have variations in their voting patterns. This paper seeks to determine what role this electoral competitiveness or uncompetitiveness, as the case may be, plays in making a state's voters choose to vote absentee. Using state by state election data from the 2000, 2004. amd 2008 presidential elections, this paper seeks to determine what role electoral competition, the relative strengths of the two major parties in each of the fifty states, and the states' political culture contribute in the variation in states' numbers of absentee voters.

5. King, Desmond. and Le Gales, Patrick. "Introduction: Theorizing the European State – one state or many states?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the SASE Annual Conference, Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain, Madrid, Spain, Online <PDF>. 2018-05-26 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p518748_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This introductory paper will sketch out the broader context of the research project, and focus particularly upon whether the development of European wide political institutions and forms of economic and legal integration mark the creation of a distinctly European state, a mere bringing together of 27 sovereign governments or some new hybrid state – a meso-level state for instance with the attributes of supra national institutions and policy powers but bereft of traditional state sovereignty. The authors draw upon a range of recent scholarly literature in comparative politics and American political development about the concept of the state.
