Title
The associative dimension of issue ownership
Author
Abstract
Issue ownership is commonly conceptualized as multidimensional, consisting of a competence dimension and an associative dimension. Because existing operationalizations of issue ownership tap only the former dimension, we focus on associative issue ownership: the spontaneous identification between specific issues and specific parties in the minds of voters. Survey evidence from Belgium shows that the associative dimension of issue ownership can be measured, that it differs from competence issue ownership, and that it is an independent determinant of voting behavior.
