‘Strong leadership needed for Brexit’: How will voters respond? asks Professor Petra Schleiter

Professor Petra Schleiter, Fellow and Tutor in Politics at St Hilda's, draws on recent research to analyse how voters will react to Theresa May's decision to call a snap election on 8 June in this article on the University of Oxford's website. Professor Schleiter makes the point that ‘voters take the government’s opportunism into account, as well as policy performance and leadership’.

Professor Schleiter’s most recent research is on Fairness and Voter Reactions to Government Opportunism. Her analysis is also published on the Department of Politics and International Relations' OxPol Blog.
