Abstract:

In this paper, we reevaluate the claim of a “gap” between support for institutions and support
for members, forwarded more forcefully by Hibbing and Theiss-Morse (1995). Here we show
that the institutions / members gap is historically contingent. In 2002, six months after the
terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, and after an historic rally in public acclaim for
social and political institutions, we far a far smaller gap. The constellation of public opinion
toward institutions, then, seems to be more responsive to public events than some previous
theories have found.
