Abstract: Do parties win when journalists report on their owned issues or when parties converge on dominant campaign issues in the media? We examine this question for Dutch parliamentary election campaigns between 1998 and 2012 on the basis of content analysis and survey data. Convergence on dominant issues in the media increases a party's electoral support indeed, especially in combination with diverging issue positions. In line with issue ownership theory, a party wins at the elections if it succeeds in getting more media attention for its issue positions than its competitors on issues that receive more media attention than in the previous campaign. However, holding on to issue positions on owned issues may pay off less than when strategically altering issue positions to attract voters.

Abstract: People who attach personal importance to an attitude are especially knowledgeable about the attitude object. In this paper, we describe nine studies testing an explanation for this relation: that importance causes the accumulation of knowledge by inspiring selective exposure to and selective elaboration of relevant information. Study One showed that after watching televised debates between presidential candidates, viewers were better able to remember the statements made on policy issues on which they had more personally important attitudes. Studies 2-4 showed that importance motivated selective exposure and selective elaboration: when given the opportunity to choose, people chose to acquire information about policies toward which they had more personally important attitudes, and they chose to think more about these policies. Studies 5-8 showed that greater personal importance was associated with better memory for relevant information encountered under controlled laboratory conditions and that manipulations eliminating opportunities for selective exposure and selective elaboration eliminated the importance-memory accuracy relation. Study 9 showed that people do not use perceptions of their knowledge volume to infer how important an attitude is to them but that importance does cause knowledge accumulation. These findings help to clarify the impact of attitude importance on information processing and refine our understanding of the relation between attitudes and memory.

Abstract: We explore the role of issue ownership in individual vote choice in the 1997 & 2000 Canadian federal elections. As a correction to the original model, we find that issue ownership's effect on vote is conditional upon the salience of the issue.

Abstract: According to the issue ownership theory of voting, voters identify the political party that they feel is the most competent, or the most credible, proponent of a particular issue and cast their ballots for the party that owns that particular issue. Yet, the actual micro-level mechanism of such behavior has seldom been examined in the literature. We assess this question and, in the process, offer a correction to the original model of issue ownership. We argue that while party ownership of an issue is important to individual vote choice, its effect is mediated by the perceived salience of the issue in question. In other words, issue ownership should only affect the voting decision of those individuals who think that the issue is important. The conditional effect of issue salience on ownership-based voting is demonstrated through analyses of the individual-level determinants of vote choice in the 1997 Canadian federal election. The results strongly suggest that salience should be more explicitly integrated into the formulation of the theory and in its empirical testing because it constitutes a key element in the micro-level mechanism of issue ownership voting.
