Summary

American Public Opinion, Sixth Edition, provides the most comprehensive and readable treatment of public opinion and politics available. An in-depth analysis of public opinion, the text explores: public opinion's origins in political socialization; the impact of the media on public opinion; the relevance of public opinion to democratic values; political trust and social capital; and the role of public opinion for elections, political parties and interest groups. The Sixth Edition offers the most recent data and analysis of opinion on such contemporary issues as abortion, gun control, race relations, and health care. As in previous editions, the Sixth Edition examines the relationship between public opinion and policy. American Public Opinion is unique in that it goes beyond a simple presentation of data, and includes critical analysis of the integral role public opinion plays in American democracy.
