4 - General Policy Disagreement and Broadly Targeted Court-Curbing


Chapter 4 presents several empirical tests of the effect of general policy disagreement on citizen support for broadly targeted Court-curbing, using national surveys from 2005, 2011, and 2012. The results indicate that general policy disagreement significantly increases support for broadly targeted Court-curbing with an effect size comparable to the impact of other key predictors, such as support for democratic values (rule of law, tolerance) and political engagement. While political engagement decreases support for Court-curbing, it does not moderate the effect of general policy disagreement.
