Abstract: Life in politically polarized times is thought to be wrought with name-calling, incivility, and downright vilification between members of opposing parties, which may corrode certain democratic processes (Mutz and Reeves 2005; Wolf, Strachan, and Shea 2012; but see Brooks and Geer 2007). Indeed, uncivil discourse can be found in variety of forms across a wide range of media formats (Sobieraj and Berry 2011). However, it is unknown whether the type of language being used in polarized times differs fundamentally between elites of opposing political orientations. A wealth of literature suggests Republicans and Democrats rely on different values, which should be reflected in language. We examine whether differences in value-based language emerge when government is more versus less polarized. Four models of how values should differ between Republicans and Democrats are tested: Lakoff’s model of Parenting Styles (Lakoff 2002), Moral Foundations Theory (Graham, Haidt, and Nosek 2009), Motivated Social Cognition (Jost et al. 2003), and Basic Personal Values (Caprara et al. 2006). We conduct a longitudinal text analysis of transcripts of Democratic and Republican elites across a range of media outlets (including State of the Union addresses, debates, congressional hearings, nomination acceptance speeches, Meet the Press appearances, and Fox News Sunday appearances) spanning multiple decades (1990-2012) to examine the degree to which elite polarization is reflected in the values elites rely on in their language. Results are discussed in terms of the existence of value-based language differences among elites and the implications for how political polarization manifests in the U.S.

Abstract: This study first examined multiple dimensions of political polarization by differentiating between the affective and cognitive components of attitude polarization and by introducing new concept of issue perception polarization. Then we identified factors that predict each aspect of polarization. In doing this, we constructed several measures that capture polarization at the group and individual level. Based on national survey data that conducted in Colombia in 2010, we found that the affective and cognitive attitude polarization and issue perception polarization showed different patterns: issue perception and cognitive attitude are highly polarized, whereas affective attitude polarization is not that severe. Also the predictors of each dimension of the polarization were different: the impact of media use was found only for affective attitude polarization; the extreme political ideology affects affective attitude polarization; and the extreme issue perception affects cognitive attitude polarization and issue perception polarization. The findings suggest that political polarization is consisted of multiple distinctive dimensions, which are differently influenced by diverse predictors. Further implications in polarization research were discussed.

Abstract: In this study, we examine the American political polarization process by visualizing data from the ANES (American National Election Study) longitudinal data set. In this paper, we examine changes in American public’s party identification, political preferences, and opinions towards several prominent interest groups in American society using data visualization techniques. The purpose of the paper is to test the existence of political polarization within the American electorate and discuss the characteristics of it. We determine that, compared to Americans in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the American electorate is comparatively much less polarized.

Abstract: How parents socialize their children into politics has changed dramatically over the past 50 years. Parents who are themselves engaged in politics have become more successful at inculcating political beliefs in their children, while parents who are less engaged in politics have been less successful than before. I suggest that political context, and the changes in the political context over time, accounts for the changes in socialization. This project will investigate how partisan polarization has contributed to this growing divide and thereby contribute to our understanding of youth political development, the development of political attitudes, and how these changes may yet deepen partisan polarization in the US.

In particular this paper presents two main arguments: First, the degree to which parents are politically polarized influences their success at socializing their children into similar political attitudes and beliefs. Second, the way in which political polarization has come to affect the masses provides an explanation for the increasing divergence in the success of highly engaged and minimally engaged parents at inculcating similar beliefs in their children. To test these arguments the project will draw on quantitative analysis of existing datasets, an original survey of parents and children, and qualitative interviews with selected parents and children. By focusing on the influence of polarization this work contributes to the socialization literature not only by demonstrating that our polarized politics is directly responsible for the growing divergence among parents in how thoroughly they socialize their children into political attitudes and beliefs, but by turning attention to the role of time-bound context in the socialization process. Further, this work contributes to the polarization literature by suggesting that polarization might not only be influencing politics today but future generations through the socialization process.
