About

Using national survey data from twenty polities, this paper analyzes ‘affective polarization,’ namely the tendency of partisans of one party to dislike other parties, and explores the factors intensifying affective polarization. The findings illuminate the political consequences of economic developments and speak to debates about political institutions and mass-elite linkages.
