Cultural Values, Political Polarization, and Attribution-Emotion Processes in Voting Behavior

The aim of this project is to understand the role of "core American values" within the context of political polarization and their impact on voting behavior. A compromising bipartisan legislative effort is simulated to test hypotheses concerning the impact of participants' values and ideological polarization on attribution-emotion processes, social judgment of politicians, and subsequent voting decision.
