Beyond the Electoral Connection

Beyond the Electoral Connection

American voting behavior has long been paradoxical. Although levels of voter participation increase with age, income, and education, middle and upper-class voters still tend to cast their ballots by "image" rather than issue. This book provides a comprehensive analysis and systematic explanation of this fundamental paradox.
