You Believe in Reason, and I Believe in the Bible
The examination of the American political climate continues in to a broader look at the myriad beliefs held by US voters. This chapter discusses the three biggest factors in what effects voter opinion: the types of issues in question, how the issues are framed, and what they hear about these issues and from whom. These three ways of framing an issue also illuminate how current models of public opinion do not fit how most Americans approach politics.
