Abstract

It is clear that coalition governments are likely to become a fact of political life in Scotland. In this paper we use data from the 2007 Scottish Election Study to examine how well the Scottish public understands these governing arrangements and whether they are developing stable and consistent attitudes towards coalitions in general. The results suggest that, while currently there is considerable confusion, Scottish voters are slowly learning to cope with coalitions. © 2008 McDougall Trust, London.
