This course provides an introduction to the literature on public opinion and participation. We begin by examining how public opinion is measured and conceptualized. We then discuss how opinions are formed, how much people know about politics and how media, political elites, and current events can shape public opinion. We finally look at whether public opinion matters in policymaking and citizen participation in politics.
