Is Bad News Biased? How Poll Reporting Affects Perceptions of Media Bias and Presumed Behavior

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Battleground state polls are a prominent part of U.S. election news coverage. In this experimental study (N=863), we tested how polling results impact how partisans evaluate the news stories through which the polls are reported. Partisans tended to see the articles as biased against their candidate; perceived bias was amplified when their candidate trailed in the poll. Additionally, we found that perceived effects of the articles on others’ behavior differed for ingroup and outgroup members.
