DURHAM, N.H. - Two national presidential election experts at the University of New Hampshire are available to discuss the vice presidential picks of Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain.

Dante Scala, associate professor of political science, is available to discuss the political significance of the vice presidential picks, the pros and cons of having them on the tickets, and whether the vice presidential choices will sway specific groups of voters, including those in toss-up states like New Hampshire. Scala can be reached at 603-540-4018 and dante.scala@unh.edu.

Andrew Smith, director of the UNH Survey Center and associate professor of political science, can discuss the latest public opinion/polling trends, whether the vice presidential choices will impact these trends, and which voters will be most influenced by the picks. He also can discuss overall polling trends, particularly in the toss-up states. Smith can be reached at andrew.smith@unh.edu, and 603-767-4190.
