How much do the political values of politicians endure throughout
their careers? And how might the endurance be explained? This paper
uses a unique longitudinal data set to examine the persistence of
political values among national politicians: members of the British
House of Commons, who completed Rokeach-type value ranking
instruments during 1971–73 and again 40 years later in 2012–16. The
findings show remarkable stability and provide strong support for
the persistence hypothesis which predicts that politicians develop
crystallized value systems by their early thirties and largely
maintain those values into retirement. This is consistent with the
view that rapid changes in aggregate party ideologies have more to
do with new views among new waves of recruits than with conversions
among old members.
