Generally, I am interested in understanding how people form and express their political attitudes and make political judgments. One area of my research examines how and why partisans across the political spectrum express such deep resentment and hostility towards ideologically dissimilar others. Together with my colleagues, I developed the ideological conflict hypothesis (Brandt, Reyna, Chambers, Crawford, & Wetherell, 2014) to explain political prejudice and hostility, and have several ongoing projects exploring the mechanisms behind and manifestations of political prejudice. Another area of my research explores how those on the left and right engage in biased political judgments. I developed the ideologically objectionable premise model (IOPM; Crawford, 2012; Crawford & Xhambazi, 2013) to predict when those on the left and right will (and won't) engage in such motivated reasoning. Please check out my website and CV for more information.
