David Muchlinski, assistant professor in the Georgia Institute of Technology Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, was recently quoted in a Washington Post article entitled “Violence around election time actually makes people more likely to vote."
Here's an excerpt:
David Muchlinski, a political science professor at Georgia Tech, offered a parallel to the Philippines, where local militias are either hired directly or encouraged by politicians to attack their opponents around election time. In the United States, Muchlinski said, extremists are being egged on by Trump and the Republican Party.
The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs is a unit of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
