Titel: Is the public's ignorance of politics trivial?
Auteur: Bennett, Stephen Earl
Verschenen in: Critical review
Paginering: Jaargang 15 (2003) nr. 3-4 pagina's 307-337
Jaar: 2003
Inhoud: Examination of a comprehensive database of political knowledge, constructed from pooled 1988 and 1992 National Election Studies, refutes criticisms that haue sometimes been lodged against standard tests that seem to reveal profound levels of public ignorance. Although most people know something about politics, the typical citizen is poorly informed, and only a small group is very knowledgeable about politics. Differentiating people according to their perceptions of the most important national problem does not reveal pockets of well-informed “issue publics” among the electorate. The NES data also show that knowledge makes a difference in how people feel about government spending for social-welfare programs, and in how well citizens were able to connect their partisanship and ideological proclivities to their votes in the 2000 presidential election.
