This chapter lays out the argument in a detailed and systematic way. The chapter argues: (a) ordinary people do hold ideological predilections regarding the nature of democratic governance; (b) those predilections stem, in part, from different expectations regarding the nature of democratic governance; (c) such differences in democratic worldviews are partially a byproduct of cultural progressivism/traditionalism. That is, this chapter provides the detailed theoretical rationale undergirding the empirical analyses that follow.

Keywords:   representation preferences, democratic governance, expectations, political culture, cultural traditionalism
