David E. Broockman
David Broockman was previously the John Stauffer National Fellow in Public Policy.
Broockman is an assistant professor of political economy at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. His current research focuses on the causes and consequences of political polarization in the United States. His research has provided new ways of understanding to what extent polarization has decreased the quality of representation and has identified novel dynamics that may be increasing polarization. His publications have appeared in the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics, Political Analysis, Political Behavior, Science, and other peer-reviewed journals. David will be spending his year at Hoover reexamining conventional wisdom about the history of political polarization in the twentieth century.
