As of this writing, Brandeis University, Penn State University Harrisburg and Willamette University have disassociated themselves with the ASA, and Northwestern University heavily criticized the boycott, but the ASA still has many members.
I have sent an email to the president of Temple University — my alma mater — Neil D. Theobald, inquiring about Temple's position on this matter. I pointed out that Temple is a member of the ASA, and as such supports it financially.
Please use the contact information after the jump to contact the president of your university and share your thoughts, and use the link at the end to share a link to this article with your friends and family so that they can do the same.
As alumni, donors, and parents of potential future students, we have the right to know where our schools and their American studies departments stand.

TPM: "Last night, after weeks of voting, the Wyoming caucuses drew to a close. Mitt Romney won them with 39% of the vote to Rick Santorum's 33%. Ron Paul won 20% and Newt Gingrich 8%. In terms of delegate allocation, CNN estimates that Romney will likely take 10, Santorum 9, Paul 6 and Gingrich 1."
See Wyoming Capital Journal for the details the next steps of delegate selection.
Over 10% of Wyomans are Mormon. Only Idaho and Utah have higher percentages. Mormons have historically favored Mitt Romney who is a Mormon elder. (See map after the jump.)
Republican's in the State of Washington will hold their caucus this coming Shabbat. The oddmakers give Romney a slight advantage over Santorum.
Next week is "Super Tuesday" with Primaries or Caucuses in 10 states.
Only Romney & Paul are on the ballot in Virginia and Massachusetts, so Romney is favored to win there as well as Vermont since it is so near Massachusetts and Idaho which is 27% Mormon, second only to Utah's 72%. (See map after the jump.)
Paul's best chances are in Alaska and North Dakota's caucuses.
Gingrich will likely pick up his home state of Georgia.
Santorum is strongest in the Midwest: Ohio, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.
The latest odds according to Intrade follow the jump.
