On Trust, It’s a Matter of Religion: The Effect of Religion on Political Trust

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



Abstract:

Political trust is an important aspect of democratic government. Research demonstrates that political trust has significant effects on public policy outcomes such as social spending. What is less clear, however, are the determinants of political trust—particularly through social institutions. This paper attempts to address this gap in the literature. To do so we take into account the effect of different types of religious institutions because they are places where important civic skills are built and exercised. We hypothesize that religious institutions should have differing effects among African-Americans given the history of the church as a source of political empowerment. Testing our theory using NES data and ordered logit models, we find preliminary evidence for our theory, and suggest ways to improve the research going forward.
