Democracy for realists: why elections do not produce responsive goverment



Democracy for realists assails the romantic folk-theory at the heart of contemporary thinking about democratic politics and government,and offers a provocative alternative view grounded in the actual human nature of democratic citizens. The authors deploy a wealth of social-scientific evidence,including ingenious original analyses of topics ranging fron abortion politics abd budget deficits to the Great Depression and shark attacks, to show that the familiar ideal of thoughthful citizens steering the ship of state from the voting booth is fundamentally misguided.They demonstate that voters mostly choose parties and candidates on the basic of social identities and partisan loyalties,not political issues. They also show that voters adjust their policy views and even their perceptions of basic matters of fact to match those loyalties. Achen and Bartels argue that democratic theory needs to be founded on identity groups and political parties,not on the preferences of individual voters.
