Evidenz für strategisches Wählen mit der Erststimme

  • Michael Herrmann
Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Wie viele Wähler wählen strategisch mit der Erststimme? Dieses Kapitel geht der Frage nach, ob mit der Erststimme strategisch gewählt wird. Dazu werden die Angaben von Wählern ausgewertet, die vor den Bundestagswahlen 1998 und 2002 befragt wurden. Die Ergebnisse zeigen deutliche Hinweise, dass Wähler auf strategische Anreize reagieren. Um ein Massenphänomen handelt es sich bei strategischem Wählen aber nicht. Nur geschätzte ein bis drei Prozent aller abgegebenen Erststimmen waren strategischer Natur.
