Abstract [en]

In the Swedish parliamentary election of 7 September 2018, the biggest parties, the Social Democrats and the Moderates, both lost votes compared to their scores in the previous election, but not as many as they had feared. Commensurately, the radical-right challenger party, the Sweden Democrats (SD), which had seemed certain to profit from Sweden's dramatic experience of the European migration crisis, did well, but not as well as it had hoped. The result left the array of parliamentary forces fragmented and finely balanced. Only after months of negotiations could a government be formed. Eventually, the incumbent coalition received a renewed parliamentary mandate. At the same time, the party system was transformed.

Abstract [en]

The mediatization of politics denotes a long-term process through which politicalactors have become increasingly dependent on news media, the key mechanismbeing the adaptation to news media and news media logic by political actors. Oneaspect of this is related to how political parties communicate during election cam-paigns, and how important they perceive different communication channels to be.Against this background, the purpose of this study is to explore the assessment ofdifferent communication channels in election campaigns by political parties overtime. This study analyses the ways in which political parties value the importanceof traditional news media, social media and traditional methods for communica-tion with voters during election campaigns. The empirical material covers the 2010,2014 and 2018 Swedish national elections, enabling us to make comparisons withinthe same national context as well as to explore their development over time. Theresults indicate that news media is still considered the most important communi-cation channel, although social media is levelling the field.

Abstract [en]

The radical right continues to make electoral progress. While the general and, by large, continuous increase in support has been going on for at least two decades it is only recently that we can regard the radical right party family as one of the large ones. Despite this, there are reasons to believe that its full potential has yet to be revealed. Previous research suggest that parties of the radical right might suffer from a stigmatization effect, that is, voters are reluctant to vote for them since supporting them is regarded as less socially acceptable. Similarly, it has been suggested that due to the lack of a reputational shield some segments of the electorate will find proposals from the radical right less compelling compared to a situation where the exact same proposal is presented by one of the mainstream parties. While this seems like a convincing hypothesis, we are not aware of any systematic Large-N studies testing this claim. Against this background, this study employs an experimental survey design to empirically test whether political proposals are assessed differently dependent on who the sender is. Specifically we have conducted a survey experiment, in a panel with Swedish voters, randomizing the sender in order to measure whether political proposals are less favored if they are presented by the radical right Sweden Democrats instead of one of the mainstream parties the Social Democrats and the Moderates.
