Title
Rose-tinted glasses or taking a pessimistic view? Elite (mis)perceptions of mass attitudes in a comparative perspective

Abstract
This project assesses how far the perceptions that political elites hold about the policy positions of the mass are from the general public's actual opinion. In other words, this is a project about the bias (if any) in the elites’ perception of the mass position. Using the EUENGAGE mass and elite datasets, we ask whether there is any systematic bias in the elites’ perceptions of mass positions and what can explain this misperception? In doing so, we look at country-level, party-level and individual-level explanations.
