I am a Professor of Political Science at the University of Manchester. I work broadly in the areas of public opinion, electoral choice and party politics. My first book (co-authored with Matthew Goodwin) - "Revolt on the Right" - examined the rise of the UK Indpendence Party. It was named Political Book of the Year in 2015. I have edited two volumes of short essays for a general audience looking at voter behaviour and public opinion - "Sex, Lies and the Ballot Box" and "More Sex, Lies and the Ballot Box". I comment regularly on elections, public opinion and politics for various media outlets, and via my twitter feed @robfordmancs.
