Story posted September 26, 2008

An interview with Michael Franz, Assistant Professor of Government appeared on the WCSH magazine show 207 Sept. 25, 2008.

Franz, co-author of Campaign Advertising and American Democracy, appeared with David W. Moore, founder of the University of New Hampshire's Survey Center and author of The Opinion Makers.

Franz spoke about speculation that the presidential election will draw a larger number of younger voters.

In examining the U.S. Senate race between Republican incumbent Sen. Susan Collins and Democrat Representative Tom Allen '67, Franz spoke of the difficulties he sees for Allen who, according to one poll, is trailing Collins by more than 15 points.

The interview with host Pat Callaghan was part of WCSH's Web broadcast, In the Arena, which was later rebroadcast on 207.

207 airs weeknights at 7 p.m. on WCSH (Channel 6).
