Polis is pleased to announce the publishing of two related articles on contemporary North Carolina politics by Polis’ former Director and Sanford School Professor Mac McCorkle with Rachel Salzberg, a 2020 graduate of the Sanford Master’s Program.
Posted below is McCorkle and Salzberg’s analysis of the 2020 presidential election in North Carolina entitled “The Democrats’ Countrypolitan Problem in North Carolina: Progressive Challenge and Opportunity.”
In the words of Sanford political scientist and new Polis Director Deondra Rose, “the McCorkle-Salzberg articles constitute a new interpretation of contemporary North Carolina politics that goes beyond the standard narrative about the so-called rural-urban divide as the crucial driver of statewide election results.”
