Study Content Highlights

Specific topic areas in the study include: (1) a battery designed to improve ANES instrumentation on nonelectoral political participation and mobilization, (2) testing of ANES instrumentation on group closeness, group difference, and group conflict as a basis of current mass politics, and group threat as a basis of group-based politics, (3) evaluations of the President, Congress, and the Supreme Court using a new battery of items, and (4) the role of religion in citizens’ political thinking. The use of CATI enabled a number of experimental treatments within the survey instrumentation, including random assignment, early-late placement, and presentation order. In addition, rosters of items, such as the thermometer, were randomized in administration to minimize order effects.
