This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the role of public opinion in state politics in the U.S. The themes that underlie the studies in this volume are the concerns for the role of public opinion in democratic politics and the increased importance of states as policy-making units. This volume examines the factors that shape state-level public opinion and investigates the consequences of state public opinion on state government and policy. It also considers novel simulation methodology and discusses state ideology and partisanship data to account for change in state-level opinion.
