Abstract:In my dissertation, I examined how the American public perceives Latino citizens and Latino representatives, particularly with respect to perceptions of political ideology. Political scientists have made great strides with regard to the consequences of race in American politics, and my dissertation tests whether ethnicity is similarly consequential. My focus on political ideology explores the more subtle ways in which prejudice can manifest itself in perceptions of ideological distance, and can create hurdles for descriptive Latino representation. I make use of original, experimental, observational, and survey data to examine the pliability of citizens' perceptions of Latino group ideology, the accuracy of citizens' perceptions of their Latino representative's political ideology, and to examine whether race and ethnicity influence perceptions of candidate political ideology in low-information environments.
