Concept and goalThe TV Debate Analysis includes a survey before and after the 2017 TV debate as well as surveys a few days after the debate and immediately after the federal election (ZA6810). In addition, a subgroup was interviewed before and after the five-candidate-Debate. The study aims to investigate the existence and permanence of debate effects on political attitudes and voting behaviour.
Using a voting machine, the experimental groups were able to express their views directly during the debate. Thus, the immediate reactions to the course of the debate could be measured (ZA6812, ZA6813, ZA6830, ZA 6831).
This experimental design was complemented by a content analysis of the debate (ZA6811) and the five-candidate-Debate (ZA6829).
ContentSociodemography, predispositions, political involvement, attitudes towards candidates, motive of the reception of the TV debate, emotions, frequency of reception of political news, evaluation of the performance of the candidates in the TV debate, reception of media coverage of the TV debate
