Who Will Be the Last Man (or Woman) Standing?: Examining the 2016 Primaries Through the Lens of 2012

JMC Professor to Discuss 2016 Presidential Primary Race at Secret Cellar

The Kent State University Honors College will host its next Research Uncorked event on Wednesday, February 3 at 5:30 p.m. at the Secret Cellar in downtown Kent.

Thus far, the campaigns to earn the major party nominations for the 2016 Presidential election have defied expectations and confounded prognosticators and pundits. During her upcoming presentation, “Who Will be the Last Man (or Woman) Standing?: Examining the 2016 Presidential Primaries through the Lens of 2012,” Dr. Danielle Sarver Coombs will examine what we learned from 2012 and how it can help us make sense of 2016—and, perhaps more importantly, where 2016 breaks from tradition to create a unique (and potentially uncertain) path.

Dr. Danielle Sarver Coombs is an associate professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication within the College of Communication & Information at Kent State University. 

Prior to joining Kent State, Danielle headed her own research and consumer insights company. She developed her research skills at Insight Research Group (now Insight Strategy Group) in New York City, where Danielle worked on a range of categories including consumer packaged goods, media, and fashion. She also was Director of Election Research for Edison Media Research, the company hired to rebuild exit polling for the 2004 election.

She earned her Ph.D. in mass communication and public affairs from Louisiana State University in 2007.
