Republican nominee scarred from primaries
April 11, 2012Emory University political science professor and national politics expert Merle Black discusses why Mitt Romney may firmly take the Republican nomination in April, whether an outsider could still get the nomination, if Georgia is in play and the most important states in November's election.
Black, Emory's Asa G. Candler Professor of Politics and Government, is a renowned expert on national politics and the foremost authority on politics in the South. One of the nation's most incisive commentators, Black is coauthor of "Divided America: The Ferocious Power Struggle in American Politics." The groundbreaking work was the first to detail the country's distinct regional differences to assess the driving forces of partisanship in national politics.
