Perceived Dimensions of Political Campaign Communication by Erwin Atwood( Book )

2 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advocates of the "new politics" have argued that the use of television for political campaigning can be effectively utilized to encourage and enhance the probability of split ticket voting. Derivation and analysis of seven perceived dimensions of political campaign communication among registered voters finds television unrelated to voting behavior. The print media dimension and media believability discriminate among voter groups. (Author)
The Uses of the 1976 Presidential Debates in Electoral Decision Making by Keith R Sanders( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports part of the results from a three-stage panel study of the Fall 1976 presidential campaigns; 1,927 interviews were conducted in all, 594 occurring in the week prior to the election. Results indicated that voters did not change their voting intentions significantly during the fall campaigns; that they did change the certainty with which they held their voting decisions; that voters were greatly disappointed in the debates because they expected to acquire some guidance for their voting behavior, to learn about important issues, and to acquire insights into the candidates; and that certainty about a voting decision did not dampen curiosity. Even the most certain of decisions apparently needed reinforcement, at least early in the campaign. (Aa)
A Longitudinal Analysis of Information Sources, Source Credibility, andGubernatorial Vote by Erwin Atwood( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relationships between perceived voter use of information sources and perceived source credibility and gubernatorial candidate preference were examined in a cross-lagged correlation design employing data from Illinois primary and general election surveys. The only significant test-retest correlation for source use and believability was for newspaper credibility. The media use and credibility items were also uncorrelated with gubernatorial candidate preference at both primary and general elections and with post-general election vote reports. All cross-lagged correlations between media variables and candidate preference were non-significant. All test-retest correlations for candidate preference and political party preference were statistically significant. The findings suggest that the media use and credibility variables as measured by Roper-type questions are either sensitive to differing environments of primary and general election campaigns or are unreliable measures of media use and believability.

Mass Communication and Ticket Splitting in the 1972 General Election by Erwin Atwood( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is evidence of a growing trend toward ticket splitting, or independent voting patterns in all U.S. elections, especially in recent years. Independence of the electorate in 1972 was visible in the large Republican vote for President, during substantial voting for Democrats in Congress, and in gubernatorial elections. Analysis of mass media variables and the electorate in general leads to the conclusion that the DeVries and Tarrance testing model is unconfirmed. Researchers who posit a correspondence between perceptually derived data on mass media influence and ticket splitting have yet to support that position convincingly. (Ch)
A Critique of Contemporary Approaches to the Study of PoliticalCommunication by Keith R Sanders( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twentieth century history of the academic study of political communication can be divided into three parts: the period between the World Wars, the period 1940-1965, and the period from 1965 to the present. In the first period, social scientists were greatly concerned that the democratic process might be subverted by propaganda; they were interested more in pragmatic social action than in theorizing. In the second period, a more complicated theory was adopted--the limited-effects model of political communication. This model depicted political communication as synonymous with political persuasion, especially in elections. The third and most recent approach is based on this limited-effects model, but changes and emphasizes features of the communication process. It stresses the participation of the audience, such as their communication behavior, and especially emphasizes the rediscovered uses and gratification approach. (Df)
