Abstract

Ask a Republican and a Democrat if they think that economy is getting better or worse, and you are likely to get two different answers.

New research by Ian Anson suggests that partisans devote attention to credible, and not overtly biased, information about the economy to form their judgments—but only when it reinforces their preexisting beliefs.
