Professor Jason Johnson discussed his new book Political Consultants and Campaigns: One Day to Sell with Chuck Conconi of Qorvis Communications for a segment of the online public affairs program Focus Washington.
In his book One Day to Sell, Dr. Jason Johnson looks at policy positioning from the point of view of the political consultants themselves. Should successful candidates seek the median voter, or should they position themselves in the direction of the most passionate voters? One Day to Sell incorporates interviews with campaign managers and political consultants into a groundbreaking research in political science.
