Abstract

Daniel Elazar's theories concerning political culture in various states have been put to a number of tests. This analysis differs from previous studies in that it evaluates the utility of a cultural scale derived from Elazar's work in understanding mass attitudes as expressed in proposition voting on issues which were salient during the Progressive Era. Unlike other studies, moreover, this article uses precincts within a single state, rather than states, as the basic unit of analysis. Given the historical context, the findings indicate that the cultural differences were less useful in helping to understand proposition voting than might have been expected. The implications of this finding and the value of the research techniques employed are commented upon.
