Abstract: In this paper we examine how trait perceptions of political leaders interact with the image of political parties. Perceptions of leader personality have been shown to determine citizens’ evaluations and vote preferences (Funk 1996). The main dimensions of competence, integrity, leadership and warmth offer significant information about how citizens think of their leaders. However, we do not know much about how much the image of political parties is determined by their leaders’ trait profiles. In parliamentary democracies, where citizens vote for particular parties and not particular candidates, understanding the determinants of party perceptions is important. This question is particularly timely in the context of more personalized and candidate centered politics and addresses one of the main puzzles of Dutch electoral behavior: the relative impact of parties and candidates on electoral outcomes. We use survey data collected in the Netherlands in 2006 and show that even in a political system where leaders are not very visible, citizens pay attention to the personality traits of their leaders and can provide distinct evaluations on the basis of competence, leadership, integrity, and warmth. We also show that the evaluations of leaders are related to how citizens evaluate their political parties. While competence is the most important criterion among voters in their evaluation of their party candidate, perceptions of competence and integrity of a political leader can boost the evaluation of one’s party. On the other hand, solid party reputations of integrity can strengthen their leader evaluations.
