Authoritarianism as a variable in political research



David J. Hanson

.... In the United States, preference for either the Democratic or Republican party does not seem to be associated with authoritarianism (Adorno et al., 1950; McClosky, 1958, 1960; Campbell et al., 1960; Stillman et al., 1960; Wrightsman et al., 1961; Leventhal et al., 1964; Nudelman, 1972). It is important to note that greater differences in authoritarianism have been observed between liberal and conservative wings within a given party than between parties (Adorno et al., 1950; Wrightsman et al., 1961)....
