Abstract: How do voters perceive candidates with ambiguous ethnic/racial appearance? The study examines the effects of the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of respondents on these perceptions. I submitted a SSHRC Insight Grant application in fall 2019 to extend the study, but the project did not receive funding.
