Citizens and pundits regularly critique the leadership of modern presidents, including Barack Obama. However, casual observers often make assumptions about presidential power that do not stand up to rigorous examination. Do presidents' speeches actually affect public opinion? Can they really "lead" Congress? What can modern presidents actually do to affect public policy? Join Dr. Casey Dominguez to learn about what current research says about the limits of presidential pwoer, and how political scientists evaluate their leadership.
