Abstract

The traditional view that party identification develops at an early age, is remarkably stable throughout life, and is relatively unaffected by other political attitudes has been recently challenged by evidence that adult partisanship is in fact quite responsive to other political attitudes such as policy preferences, retrospective evaluations, and past votes. The author tests predictions based on the traditional and revisionist views by estimating a model of party identification which considers the effects of parental socialization and policy preferences on the party identification of young adults. In addition, the author estimates the reciprocal effects of partisanship on policy preference.
