Democratic Challenges, Democratic Choices

Russell J. Dalton (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter first discusses the potential theoretical consequences of political support. It examines the individual consequences of distrust on patterns of political participation, compliance to the rules of government, and allegiance to the government. Distrust in politicians but support for the democratic ideal stimulates calls for policy reforms, and this contributes to the recent history of democratic institutional reforms in the U.S. states and cross-nationally.

Keywords:   dissatisfied democrats, protest, voting, compliance, political allegiance, institutional reform, term limits, electoral system, state government
