Congressional Leadership of Public Opinion
Lawrence R. Jacobs, Eric D. Lawrence, Robert Y. Shapiro, and Steven S. Smith analyze the paradox of previous research finding that public opinion has a strong influence on the collective behavior of Congress but a quite modest one on the substantive policy decisions of individual members. Focusing on the debate over health care reform in 1993 and 1994, they suggest that congressional leaders drive public opinion to resemble the collective decisions of Congress.
