Abstract
Although the winner-loser gap, i.e. the gap in various indicators of political support between winners and losers of electoral competitions, has been extensively documented in literature and losers’ consent is widely considered crucial for the stability and functioning of a political system, studies focusing on the winner-loser gap in the context of intra-party democracy are almost non-existent. These internal decision-making processes could however foster critical appraisals and create a gap between winners and losers by pitting members of the same party against each other. Hence, the question of how political parties can take internal decisions without losing the support of their party members is vital. In my PhD dissertation, I aim to investigate the attitudinal and behavioral differences between members who win or lose on internal decisions. Moreover, I study whether strategic communication (framing and negative campaigning) by political parties can moderate members’ attitudes and behavior.
