Compassionate Men and Angry Women: Examining the Effects of Emotionality on Perceptions of Politicians

October 24, 2018 — 2:45 p.m. — Richardson Room (Morton 324) 

Elected officials face the same public policy demands no matter their gender, but how politicians communicate their positions is oftentimes impacted by gendered perceptions from their audiences. For example, a male legislator can act differently when negotiating about defense policy than he can when doing so for education policy. Using a survey experiment on a diverse national sample, Lindsey Cormack and Kristyn Karl will pinpoint when each gender pays a penalty or gains reward for specific emotional appeals.
