Unconventional wisdom facts and myths about American voters by Karen M Kaufmann ( )
12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Late deciders go for the challenger; turnout helps the Democrats; the gender gap results from a surge in Democratic preference among women--these and many other myths are standard fare among average citizens, political pundits, and even some academics. But are these conventional wisdoms--familiar to anyone who watches Sunday morning talk shows--really valid? Unconventional Wisdom offers a novel yet highly accessible synthesis of what we know about American voters and elections. It not only provides an integrated overview of the central themes in American politics--parties, polarization, turnout, partisan bias, campaign effects, swing voters, the gender gap, and the youth vote--it upends many of our fundamental preconceptions

The culture wars & political polarization in perspective why polarization and its perturbations are a persistant [i.e. persistent] puzzle in political science by Donald Michael Gooch ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Political polarization in the American electorate has received a great deal of attention in recent years with most of the research focusing on social issues and their impact on electoral outcomes. However, scant attention has been paid to polarization on other issue dimensions and the mass-elite affects on polarization. I develop several empirical measures of political polarization: variance to assess the spread of opinion and kurtosis as a measure of bimodality. I assess polarization using ANES and GSS cumulative data from 1970 - 2008 on several prominent social issues such as abortion, women's equality, affirmative action, and non-social issues such as government jobs programs and defense spending. I examine public opinion polarization as well as the relationship between mass public opinion and elite public opinion using D-W nominate scores as a measure of elite opinion. I find there is significant polarization of social and non-social policy opinion, both in terms of the average public preferred level of government action in these areas and the conflict over it. Contrary to the consensus in the literature, I find that elite opinion is responsive to mass opinion and that there is a recursive relationship between mass and elite ideology
The impact of social identities on partisanship during a realignment period by John-Paul David Gravelines ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The changing nature of American political parties during the latter half of the twentieth century has long been the topic of scholarly interest. In this research, I examine the effects of different social identities on partisan realignment over two generations. By using and comparing survey data from these two generations, I isolate and identify social identities which become salient for a younger generation, while the elder cohort is less affected. This goes beyond the traditional approach of considering partisan realignments in terms of changing individuals. I examine this phenomenon, coupled with the social identity effects instilled by the preceding generation. The results suggest that parental influences through social identity establishment are an important element to be considered when studying intergenerational transmission of partisan identities
