- KurzbeschreibungThis book analyzes the three questions in political <br>competition: Who wins? What position does a <br>candidate take? Why are some candidates policy-<br>oriented but others are valence-oriented? Chapter 2 <br>attempts to answer these questions by presenting a <br>formal model that brings the spatial theory of <br>voting and empirical studies together. The model <br>specifies electoral competition as revolving around <br>candidates' positions and valences. Two candidates <br>spend their resources on valences to sway citizens <br>voting decisions but they are constrained by their <br>party activists providing them with electoral <br>resources. The model predicts that candidates with <br>valence advantages adopt more moderate positions. <br>Chapter 3 tests this prediction in the context of US <br>senate elections. Chapter 4 applies the model to <br>solve the puzzle: Why is incumbent spending less <br>effective than challenger spending? Chapters 5 and <br>6 apply the model to analyze regional voting in <br>South Korea. In these chapters, it is argued that <br>regional appeals become a more effective way to win <br>votes as the parties ideological positions become <br>less distinguishable.
