Which questions are the user submitted content?

The playground contains items that are only asked to subsets of respondents.

Because of the number of questions asked to Scottish and Welsh respondents, these questions were only asked to English respondents.

In wave 1 these questions were primarily suggested by the community of academic users. After reviewing 24 proposals for user content, the British Election Study team and advisory board approved three user proposals for inclusion in wave 1.

These proposals were:

  • Citizens’ evaluations of the fulfilment of election pledges (Heinz Brandenburg and Robert Thomson)
  • Voter Uncertainty About Party Policy Positions (Zeynep Somer-Topcu and Margit Tavits)
  • A Social Identity Approach to Partisanship (Leonie Huddy and Alex Bankert)
