This chapter puts the European findings into comparative perspective by using a national survey from the United States, in which a large section of the ESS 2008 Welfare Attitudes module was replicated. It shows that when it comes to government responsibilities, American attitudes are quite different from the European mean, in that Americans ask for much less responsibility from government for the welfare of citizens. This chapter also used data and theoretical perspective on opinion formation through the use of embedded survey experiments.

Keywords:   ESS 2008 Welfare Attitudes, government responsibilities, welfare, United States, opinion formation
