Political Choice in Britain

Front Cover
Why do people vote as they do? Indeed, why do they vote at all? What do they think about elections and democracy? This book addresses these questions by focusing on the explanatory power of rival sociological and "individual rationality" models. Data from the latest British Election Study, earlier election studies and monthly opinion polls reveal that government and party performance, rather than social class, provides the superior explanation of vote choice.
