Political Behavior: Reasoning Voters and Multi‐Party Systems

(p.255) Chapter 9 Political Behavior: Reasoning Voters and Multi‐Party Systems
A New Handbook of Political Science

Franz Urban Pappi

Oxford University Press

Advances a model of voting in multi‐party systems in the light of existing theory and research, with the addition of a mediating variable––party preference profiles. This variable serves as a link between political reasoning and vote choice, and separates the processes of political awareness and voting behaviour. An analysis is offered for the explanation of how party preferences are formed and how they influence voting decisions.

Keywords:   multi‐party systems, party preferences, political awareness, political behaviour, political reasoning, voting
