Social structure and voting

One of my research area is the relation between politics and social structure. In particular, I am interested in how party competition affects this relation. The core idea behind this is that, as parties move to the center of the space of political competition, they become more similar thereby giving different voters less reason to choose differently. I have been working on this topic from the beginning of my doctoral studies.
