Abstract:
Anecdotal evidence and recent empirical research suggests that parties observe the strategies of counterparts in similar countries when crafting their campaign messages. This strategy assumes that voter preferences, or the changes in voter preferences, are cross-nationally linked; for example, that electoral results in the Netherlands offer insight into likely outcomes in Germany by revealing voter preferences. However, the extent to which the preferences are correlated, and why they may be correlated, is unknown. We propose a theory that the ideological preferences of citizens across borders are linked as a result of an increasingly integrated global economy. Since market hiccups, threats to labor value, sector shocks, and others, are increasingly shared across borders so too should their political responses. With the use of the most extensive data collection to date on the preferences of voters, we expect to find greater preference congruence among those in countries with similar economic structures and unifying economic institutions. Our findings reveal that cross-border policy diffusion could be the result of leaders responding in similar fashions to shifting demands by similar electorates, rather than a process of strategic emulation in leaders’ strategies.
