Making reference to the social identity theory, the chapter investigates party and coalition identification. The intensity of identification of left-wing and right-wing voters with their party and coalition are taken into account. Then, coexistence between party and coalition identifications is considered. Data come from an ITANES survey carried out on a representative sample of the Italian population in 2004. Results show that identification with the coalition is usually lower than identification with the party. Left-wing voters are however more identified than right-wing voters. Besides, while among right-wing voters a stronger identification with the coalition leads to a lower party identification, among left-wing voters the two identifications coexist.

Abstract

Making reference to the social identity theory, the chapter investigates party and coalition identification. The intensity of identification of left-wing and right-wing voters with their party and coalition are taken into account. Then, coexistence between party and coalition identifications is considered. Data come from an ITANES survey carried out on a representative sample of the Italian population in 2004. Results show that identification with the coalition is usually lower than identification with the party. Left-wing voters are however more identified than right-wing voters. Besides, while among right-wing voters a stronger identification with the coalition leads to a lower party identification, among left-wing voters the two identifications coexist.
