UNIT 2 KEY CONCEPTS 1 . Public opinion is the population's attitudes on an issue or question. It can be measured by a variety of techniques, but with a high degree of accuracy by scientific polling. 2. To understand the nature of public opinion on an issue, one must understand the various dimensions and characteristics of public opinion. 3. Political socialization is the process by which people acquire an awareness of the facts about and values concerning politics. It is a lifelong process. Among the major agents of socialization are the family, schools, peers, and the mass media. 4. Political attitudes vary in America depending on such socioeconomic characteristics as education, Income/class, ethnicity and race, religion, region, and gender. 5. A political ideology is an organized, coherent set of attitudes on government and public policy. Liberal and conservative ideologies have taken on a multidimensional character, reflecting not only the traditional for government's role in society but also social and foreign policy concerns.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
