- If you follow Pennsylvania politics, you can take this quiz and see how much you really know (I didn't even try).
- What is political ignorance? An economist and blogger explores the topic. At the bottom you can follow to later links and discussion.
- A new book argues that to advance our understanding of political knowledge we must consider five principal areas of research: the traditional model, heuristic models, impression-driven models, affect-based models, and models of operative knowledge. I plan on reading the full chapter soon. Will report back.
- Perhaps people don't do well on political knowledge tests because they're just not motivated to try hard. That's the focus of this conference paper (abstract only).
