Fear and Learning in the Illegal Immigration Debate
Unformatted Document Text:  Republicans to want to spend less on border security than in the control condition.

Republicans to want to spend less on border security than in the control condition. It is worth
noting though that support for increased border spending was incredibly high in the control
condition (20 of 21 supported spending more on the border), signally that the exploitation
condition may be powerful for Republicans under certain conditions. Even in a threatening and
negative environment, partisanship still acts as a “perceptual screen” (Campbell et al 1960) in
how individuals evaluate affectively charged information and form attitudes about immigration.
