My research is generally in the area of political psychology. I developed the ideologically objectionable premise model (IOPM; Crawford, 2012; Crawford & Xhambazi, 2013) and the political person perception (P3) model (Crawford, Jussim, Madon, Cain, & Stevens, 2011) to understand how people make political judgments. I am also interested in what factors influence people's hostility towards political outgroups (Crawford, Modri, & Motyl, in press; Crawford & Pilanski, 2013a; Crawford & Pilanski, 2013b). Finally, I believe our field has disproportionately concerned itself with the psychology of the political right; I am therefore interested in exploring social psychological and personality processes across the political spectrum (Brandt, Reyna, Chambers, Crawford, & Wetherell, in press; Crawford, Jussim, & Pilanski, 2013).
