The results of the 2016 U.S. presidential election have left many Americans shocked and puzzled. In an attempt to address the trends and remaining questions from one of the longest, most intriguing presidential elections of the 21st century, The Centre for Politics and Media Research (CPMR) has published 83 articles in a collection titled "US Election Analysis 2016: Media, Voters, and the Campagin". The collection features theoretical and analytical contributions from some of the most well-known political and political communication scholars in the field today, including Geoffrey Baym (Temple University), Richard Perloff (Cleveland State University), Eric Bucy (Texas Tech University), and Michael Delli Carpini (University of Pennsylvania). The collection also includes a contribution from a member of the Political Psychology PhD minor, Matthew Motta (Political Science). Matt's contribution highlights the unusual aspects of this election cycle's ad wars.
