Resumo

Como os cidadãos decidem em quem votar nas eleições? As respostas tradicionais enfocam o papel do conhecimento político, identificação de partidos e avaliações do desempenho passado dos governos como variáveis explicativas. Neste artigo, avaliamos um argumento alternativo: o papel desempenhado pelas emoções. Usando dados de uma pesquisa realizada após as eleições gerais chilenas de dezembro de 2017, investigamos a associação das emoções como voto em Sebastián Piñera e como as emoções interagem com outros fatores relevantes que se correlacionam com o voto. Concluímos que no Chile, juntamente com a identificação do partido e a avaliação de governos anteriores, as emoções dos eleitores em relação aos candidatos estão associadas à decisão do voto.
