Multidimensionality Of Partisan Identification Revisited, Amanda Swanner Jan 2007

Multidimensionality Of Partisan Identification Revisited, Amanda Swanner

LSU Master's Theses

In this paper I retest the assertion that party identification is multidimensional by using the 2000 American National Election Survey. Variables relevant to partisanship are used to examine how voters connect their evaluations of the two parties. The findings support the theory of multidimensionality. The data show that the multidimensional conceptualization of party identification is better for understanding the attitudes and behavior of partisans.
