1. Hall, Precious D. Voting: Is it Just for Old People?.

Degree: MA, Political Science, 2008, Georgia State University

In 2004, the clothing retailer Urban Outfitters sold a t-shirt with the slogan, “Voting is for Old People”. Did Urban Outfitters step over the line, or were they a reflection of the sate of our democracy and the demographics of current voters? Many organizations have developed to combat the problem of low youth voter turnout and disengagement. One of the most well-known organizations is Rock the Vote. In its 18 year existence, has youth turnout increased? Have their efforts been futile or on the other side, have they been successful in paving the way for the youth to demand attention from the government and be heard? The purpose of this research is to measure the effects of the efforts targeted toward youth voters over the past 18 years, in terms of voter turnout using American National Election Studies Data. The results show that voting is not just for old people. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Michael Binford - Chair, Dr. Scott Graves, Dr. Richard Engstrom.

2. Burns, Patrick Lee. Religion and Party Realignment: Are Catholics Realigning into the Republican Party?.

Degree: MA, Political Science, 2006, Georgia State University

This thesis examines the influence of religion on party realignment in the United States focusing on Catholic voting behavior. A statistical analysis utilizing bivariate analysis and logistical regressions examines if religion and party realignment is an ecumenical trend expanding beyond Evangelicals to Catholics. It measures scientifically the party trends of the Catholic voter. With data pooled from the National Election Studies from 1960 to 2004, it tests the hypothesis that church attending Catholics are realigning over time into the Republican Party both in vote choice and party identification, because of their pro-life position on abortion. The analysis shows that church attending Catholics have dealigned from the Democratic Party over time because of their pro-life position on abortion. The thesis is a model for examining the religion and party realignment question for other traditional Democratic religious denominations such as African-American Evangelicals and Jews. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Allison Calhoun-Brown - Chair, Dr. Michael Binford, Dr. Richard Engstrom.

Subjects/Keywords: Party Vote for President; Party Identification; Dealignment; Pro-life; Church Attendance; Political Science
