description:
ELECT1 is the first unit of a five-unit project designed to investigate the impact of the mass media and interpersonal communication on a representative sample of UNC undergraduates during the final weeks of the 1986 general elections. In the five units, students are questioned weekly about changes in their commitment to candidates running for the U.S. Senate, House of Representatives, and State Supreme Court. The study will replicate a CAPS/84 study that focused on the Reagan-Mondale, Helms- Hunt, and Martin-Edmisten campaigns. ELECT1 contains questions about how interested the R is in the elections, who they favored in last spring's Senate primary, whether they voted in the primary elections last spring, if/where they expect to vote in November. In addition, the R is asked how committed they are to voting for Broyhill or Sanford in the Senate race, whether that response would have been the same 2 weeks ago. If the latter answer is no, respondents are asked to recall their pas t degree of commitment, what new information led them to change their minds, and whether everyone in their family agrees with their voting preference for the Senate race. A similar series of questions are asked about whether the R favors the Democratic or Republican candidate in the House election. A first question asks what district the R plans to vote in. In subsequent ELECT units Rs are asked about their commitment to candidates. If commitment has changed they are asked to explain why and their sources of information. The 1985 SETH units are very similar to the ELECT units. No standard scoring. See codebook for more information.
