Nat’l Review: Why Jeb Bush 2012?

  1. wide-open field
  2. 2016 too late
  3. 2016 too many new GOP candidates
  4. Bush rehab begun
  5. waiting too long is mistake
  6. Jeb will still be Bush in 2016 (WTF?)

why political/party self-ID?

  • childhood experience
    • parental influence
      • both parents same party = strong PID in children
      • mixed-party parents = lower interest in politics overall
    • school influence
  • adult experience
    • spouse’s preference
    • employment environment
    • neighborhood composition
    • issue emergence
      • newly-prominent issues can cause split/change
      • historical/social context
    • partisan/independent strength or prominence
