Wiki Biography / Profile Background

Introduction :

  • Interpreting American politics is quite different for political scientist Rachel Bitecofer from what the common person understands it.
  • Rachel considers quite a lot of opinions and facts politically aware people seldom know about as certainly true. That has made her one of the most intriguing new figures in political forecasting current times have seen.
  • Currently, Bitecofer is a professor at the Christopher Newport University in Virginia.
  • She wasn’t very well known in the notably male-dominated world of political forecasting until November 2018. That was the period when she forecasted correctly almost to the number, the nature, and size of the Democrats’ win in the House, even as other forecasters failed in the race’s final days.
  • In her position with the Wason Center for Public Policy, she conducts survey research on public policy issues and election campaigns.

Work Experience, Salary and Net Worth :

  • Rachel was hired by Christopher Newport University to work in its public-policy division after completing her Ph.D.
  • She has since then been hired by the Niskanen Center, a centrist think tank based in Washington, D.C. while maintaining her academic post.
  • Currently, she is also an Assistant Director of The Judy Ford Wason Center for Public Policy at the Christopher Newport University where she teaches classes on political behavior, campaigns, elections, and political analysis.

Early Years :

  • Born in 1977, Rachel had grown up as a Navy brat, mostly in the D.C. area, and spent her youth following the Grateful Dead and Widespread Panic, reading The New York Times in the parking lot between shows.
  • Rachel was living in Eugene, Oregon. She would describe herself as a single mom at a dead-end administrative job at a Republican polling firm when she heard Rachel Maddow on Air America mention her doctorate in political science. That changed her career path. She went on to study and rose to the position where she is currently.

Education : Qualifications, High School & College Info

  • Rachel enrolled in community college and then went to attend the University of Oregon. From there she then went on to the University of Georgia for a Ph.D.

Interesting Facts, Height and Trivia :

  • Rachel’s theory is that modern American elections are rarely shaped by voters changing their minds but rather by shifts in who decides to vote in the first place.
  • By 2018, Bitecofer had already released her 2020 prediction model and again stands alone among other election forecasters in giving the Democrats (who did not yet have a nominee), the 270 electoral votes required to claim the presidency without a single toss-up state flipping their way.
  • Rachel’s research has been featured in many media outlets, including national outlets such as The Washington Post, Huffington Post, and NPR. She is a regular contributor on CBC Radio.
  • She has written a book titled The Unprecedented 2016 Presidential Election.
  • Rachel has answers for all such political questions and situations like who the Democratic nominee would be? Or why did the Democrats win a big 41-seat midterm victory in 2018? What if there is no such thing as “the center,” and the party in power can govern; however, it wants two years because the first midterm results will be bad regardless.
