Overall, I enjoyed this class. The material is extremely interesting, and taking this class changed the way I think about politics. I feel much more informed about partisanship, polarization, voting behavior, and the relationship between identity and politics. If you want to become more politically literate in a more practical sense, this is the perfect class to help you understand why people vote the way they do.

As for Professor Baylor himself, I always found him to be extremely responsive and helpful. He gives great insight and is eager to help students better understand the material if they reach out. Although it is true that he was a bit disorganized at times with forum posts, I don't think it's fair to say that he doesn't care about his students. Like us, professors are also adjusting to virtual platforms.

This was an interesting class, and as long as you are willing to put in some work and reach out when you need help, you will do well and learn a lot.

BEST PROFESSOR AT UCLA!

CLEAR - He types up the lecture outline for you, you just need to fill in the blanks. He goes slow and makes sure everyone understands what he is talking about

FAIR - His tests are all straightforward; he even posts the questions for his tests up

FUN - Great guy, funny and will not bore u to death like many other professors who talks like they hate their job. Phil loves what he does and he is so passionate

GREAT PROFESSOR, I would take him for every single class at UCLA. Seriously.

And regarding what a fellow reviewer had mentioned, I suspect all the positive reviews were written by James himself. So sad.

He is a great lecturer, and informs on what he plans to put on the midterms and finals. However, getting an A in this class is very difficult. I got an A- after doing 98 and 96 on the two midterms, the final he gave me an 88 and wouldn't let me dispute it. The readings are not all that important, just go to class and pay attention.
