Title

Political Party and The First Step Act

Description

Criminal justice reform has been a hot topic in politics. With rates of mass incarceration rising, many politicians are looking to see how policies can be adjusted to better protect the country. For my research project, I plan to study how political alignment affects an individual’s opinion of the First Step Act. I am interested in studying this topic because the First Step Act was recently signed into law in 2018 by President Trump. At the time, it was praised for being a bipartisan policy and received lots of support from both sides of Congress.
