The purpose of this unit is to help understand the kind of learning about candidates that occurs during a primary campaign. Special attention is directed at differences in Rs answers before and after the caucuses and primaries in the 1984 presidential campaign and associated media coverage. In WAVE1 measures of the Rs general political knowledge, knowledge of current events, and information about the campaign, as well as standard measures of political interests, ideology, media attentio n and partisanship were obtained. in all WAVE datasets, the following measures were obtained: Rs affect ratings of relevant candidates and their first reaction to seeing the candidate's name. On later studies, Rs were asked open ended questions to elicit the types of information Rs had about candidates, as well as the standard ICPSR likes and dislikes open-ended question. Later waves also included semantic differential evaluations of candidate personalities and asked the Rs to predict like ly outcomes of the presidential election. Some basic background information on the partisanship of R's parents were also obtained. Here is the content of the individual datasets: WAVE1 contains political knowledge questions and personal background and media information, as well as candidate familiarity, liking and liberal conservative ratings. Twelve candidates are asked about. E1B was run prior to WAVE1 units, same session. It asked Rs to list all the Democratic candidates for president they could think of. WAVE2 replicates personal background info and revises media info. Replicates candidate familiarity , liking, and lib/con ratings of candidates and first thing think of about each candidate from ELECT1 E2B was run prior to WAVE2 units, same session. Asked R to list everything you can think of about several candidates. E3 replicates candidate familiarity, liking and lib/con ratings, as well as first thing think of about each question. E3A asks R who he/she would pick for president. E3B replicates E2B: everything can think of. WAVE4 replicates candidate familiarity and liking ratings and first thing you can think of, same as E1. Does not repeat lib/con ratings. Also contains s emantic differential ratings on a number of candidates, who R thinks will win the Democratic presidential nomination and R's recall of winners of various caucuses and primaries. E4A Replicates who would pick and why, same as E3A. Run prior to WAVE4 same session. WAVE5 replicates candidate familiarity, liking and lib/con ratings on a reduced number (seven) of candidates. also replicates first thing you think of question on these seven candidates. Asks about most likely Democratic nominee, conversations about the election, policy positions and candidates favored. E5A replicates who would pick and why, same as E3A. Run prior to WAVE5, same session. WAVE6 replicates candidate familiarity and liking questions on 7 candidates. Also first thing think of question. Adds R's ratings of self, mother and father on lib/con scale. Also includes Rs approval of Reagan's handling of several situations, replication of WAVE2 media questions and WAVE4 semantic differential questions, candidate preferences, parents' political ideology, party id and past voting behavior. E6B asks Rs to list any positive and negative points about Reagan and Mondale tha t might influence them to vote for or against these candidates. Run in same session as WAVE6. No standard scoring.
