Andrew Guess and co-authors' research is featured in The Guardian. "Researchers reveal corrosive power of Trump’s lie of a stolen election" describes their new paper published in the Journal of Experimental Political Science. "The Effects of Unsubstantiated Claims of Voter Fraud on Confidence in Elections" concludes that when political elites use unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud to delegitimize election results, these claims "undermine confidence in elections, particularly when the claims are politically congenial, and their effects cannot easily be mitigated by fact-checking."

Guess is assistant professor of politics and public affairs and CSDP faculty associate at Princeton University.
