Jesse Rhodes and Ray La Raja Quoted in Op Ed about NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio

Jesse Rhodes and Ray La Raja, Professors of Political Science at UMass Amherst, are cited in an opinion piece that advocates for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. In explaining why de Blasio could be successful with negative poll numbers, the author notes that Rhodes and La Raja found that “the views of white voters are structurally overrepresented in local politics throughout the country, even in cities like New York that are majority non-white.” (Gotham Gazette, 7/22/21)
