5 - Anger and Democratic Values in the Mass Public

Summary

This chapter examines whether anger can cause individuals to weaken in their commitment to democratic norms and values. Utilizing another experimental approach, I show that anger does lower the citizenry’s commitment to democratic norms and values. These effects are most pronounced in regards to issues like political tolerance and respect for minority opinions.
