About This Project

Microaggressions are small yet biased oppressive statements. Studies prior to 1994 demonstrated that candidates' gender strongly influenced their perceived electability. While no studies demonstrated similar effects in the 2016 election, microaggressions might have influenced electoral outcome. We hypothesize that if more microaggressions are in a candidate’s description, then the candidate would be perceived as less electable because of microaggression’s subtle influence on decision making.
