Highlight the types of benefits politicians and bureaucrats receive from interest groups. What is the pluralist defense of interest groups? What might undermine this perspective? Why might it not be so bad? Describe the difference between insider and outsider lobbying tactics. What types of interest groups generally use each? Under what circumstances will one by more impactful than the other?
Where does public opinion come from? Discuss its cognitive foundations and how socialization produces these. Why might aggregate public opinion be ok (that is, rational), even if people don’t know a lot about politics? Why not – what might undermine these mechanisms?
