Biden’s pick for vice president doesn’t matter much

David Schultz, professor of political science at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minn., writing in The Hill –

There is little evidence that vice presidential candidates affect voter turnout, or voters’ choice for president in any significant way. My research indicates that, for the most part, voters select presidential candidates based on the person at the top of the ticket, not because of the vice president. Maybe the vice presidential choice sways 1 or 2 percent of voters, but it is not clear that even this is the case.
