This chapter compares the impact of public opinion and interest groups on policy making in American states. It proposes a new measure of state public policy and identifies measures of state policy priorities. It argues that public opinion indirectly affects both collective goods and particularistic policy through the impact of public opinion on interest group formation. This chapter also contends that the conventional view that public opinion and interest groups compete in the policy-making process is too simplistic.

Keywords:   public opinion, interest groups, policy making, American states, state public policy, policy priorities, collective goods, particularistic policy
