Effects of the Presidential Address on Public Opinion: A Case Study of President Bush and the Iraq War
This study examines the effect a Presidential address has on public opinion, using President Bush and the Iraq war as a case study. Literature in this field suggests that presidents are able to positively influence public opinion of an issue when they make their case publicly. I hypothesize that an individual's political party affiliation will impact the way in which they respond to the President's appeal. I will use survey data from September 2002 through November 2006 to determine if President Bush has been able to successfully persuade the American public to support the war in Iraq.
