Princeton studies in political behavior.
"Voters now see protests as ideological- i.e., belonging to the Democrat or Republican Party. Consequently, as protest grows in America, it pushes more voters to turnout to the polls, donate to political campaigns, and run for office-benefiting the political party that is perceived to be the most supportive of the protestors' message. Thus, protests are the canaries in the coal mines that warn of future political and electoral changes. This is how protest shapes our democracy"-- Provided by publisher.
