Read Study: Fear shapes voters' views

The article describes a study in which volunteers were asked to think about certain topics before they were asked the poll questions. Choice bits:

The volunteers were aged from 18 into their 50s and described themselves as ranging from liberal to deeply conservative. No matter what a person's political conviction, thinking about death made them tend to favor Bush, Solomon said. Otherwise, they preferred Kerry.

"I think this should concern anybody," Solomon said. "If I was speaking lightly, I would say that people in their, quote, right minds, unquote, don't care much for President Bush and his policies in Iraq."

Read the whole thing for more study parameters and context. Then share it.
