Do Campaign Events Matter? New Evidence from Voting Advice Applications
ANJA KILIBARDA, CLIFTON VAN DER LINDEN, and Yannick Dufresne leverage the extraordinarily large samples of public opinion collected by Voting Advice Application to examine the granular effects of campaign events on electoral outcomes. Drawing on the case of the 2011 Canadian federal election, they demonstrate how particular events that took place during the campaign contributed to the so-called ‘Orange Wave’ which catapulted the historically third party NDP into Official Opposition status.
