Abstract:

This paper clearly shows that soccer covered in the media regularly and significantly influences judgment statements about the most important political candidates and parties in the last ten years in Germany. To our knowledge, there has been no further study in Germany or elsewhere that investigated the success in sports and its relation to political popularity.

Results are based on a daily survey representative of the German population. The effect of soccer games and soccer coverage on voting intention and popularity of political candidates are analyzed for the time between 1993 and 2002 using time series analysis.

The effects supported in this paper mostly originated from matches of the German national soccer team, mostly in international tournaments. Victories in those games could often be useful for the party in power and the opposition, failure could sometimes harm. Soccer could influence the popularity of persons (i.e., the leading candidates) more than it influenced the intention to vote for a certain party.

The ‘Public Mood Theory’ offers coherent explanations for the relationship between soccer and political judgement. The general Public Mood provides the logical link between the two items.

Soccer in the Media Public Mood and how the German ruling coalition won the last national Elections. The odds seemed against captain “Acker” 1 and his team – the opponent´s team was way in lead and time was running out quickly. At that time there were few who thought that they could still turn the tide: We still have 10 minutes left to win the match which means we have to fight fight and fight and we cannot analyze
