Professor Stephen Farnsworth of the University of Mary Washington in Virginia said that the U.S. airlift of more than 100,000 people under perilous conditions in just a few weeks was an immense logistical challenge.
Stephen Farnsworth, professor of political science and director of the University’s Center for Leadership and Media Studies, is co-author of an article, “Intermedial #MAGA: The Trump Presidency on Screen,” recently published in the Australasian Journal of American Studies.
Dr. Farnsworth also was featured in several local, regional and national news stories:
With Professor of Geography Steve Hanna: Richmond Politics 08/27/21 (Richmond Times-Dispatch)
Stephen Farnsworth, a professor of political science at the University of Mary Washington, recently shared research he's been working on with Stephen P. Hanna, a professor of geography at the university, and Kate Seltzer, a senior with a double major in political science and communication.
Stephen Farnsworth at the University of Mary Washington says the platform of policy proposals, which Youngkin calls his Day One Game Plan, seems like pretty standard Republican politics. "Youngkin is doing what he needs to do to tailor a message that is more appealing to the suburbs than the traditional Republican statewide message, which is heavy on a socially-conservative message," Farnsworth explains.
“The legacy of Donald Trump continues to be a powerful tailwind for Democrats,” said University of Mary Washington Political Science Professor Stephen J. Farnsworth. “Youngkin has to thread a tough needle. He has to figure out a way to sound ‘Trump’ enough to keep Trump supporters energized. But he has to be careful not to sound too much like Trump and risk losing those suburban voters who have never liked the former president.”
Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin "has a very difficult challenge here,” says Stephen Farnsworth, a political science professor at the University of Mary Washington. “If you seem too much like Trump, you lose some voters. If you seem not enough like him, you can lose others.”
