Is One Nation really a postmaterialist party? Exploring the relationship between postmodernization and party support in Australia
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we explore the relationship between postmodern values and voting in Australia. The best-known and most widely used measure in the literature is Inglehart's materialism-postmaterialism scale and we begin by examining what the four-item version of this scale can offer in understanding voting support for Australian political parties. We continue by examining other aspects of postmodern attitudes and investigate whether or not the incorporation of a postmodern politics dimension as well as a more traditional left-right dimension adds to our understanding of current voting patterns in Australia, including for minor parties.
