Spatial Voting Meets Spatial Policy Positions: An Experimental Appraisal

TANJA ARTIGA GONZÁLEZ, GEORG D. GRANIC
2019 American Political Science Review  
We develop and validate a novel experimental design that builds a bridge between experimental research on the theory of spatial voting and the literature on measuring policy positions from text.  ...  Our design utilizes established text-scaling techniques and their corresponding coding schemes to communicate candidates' numerical policy positions via verbal policy statements.  ...  Let Ls and Rs denote the absolute number of left and right statements of a political text within a fixed multi-category policy dimension, and let S denote the total number of statements.  ...
