(p.38) Chapter 3 State Residency, State Laws, and Public Opinion
Public Opinion in State Politics

Barbara Norrander

Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the influence of state residency and state laws on public opinion. It analyzes the influence of state residency and demographic traits on the core attitudes of party identification and ideology and investigates whether the environment of the state can affect a person's attitude toward public policies. The analysis of public opinion on state abortion laws indicates that people who live in more conservative abortion policy states tend to hold more conservative opinion than those who live in more liberal abortion policy states.

Keywords:   state residency, state laws, public opinion, demographic traits, party identification, public policies, abortion laws
