Sara Wallace Goodman, UCI political science professor, talks about her new book out entitled Pandemic Politics: The Deadly Toll of Partisanship in the Age of COVID… Goodman’s team was the first to collect and analyze national survey data asking Americans about their health behaviors and attitudes. “There’s this interesting set of studies in political psychology that talk about what people do in a crisis. Some people get angry, and when you get angry, you don’t seek new information. When you get angry, you don’t seek solutions, you act out, you participate in denialist behavior. Another emotional response is anxiety – if you experience anxiety or fear or uncertainty, then you’re more likely to seek out information,” says Goodman.
