Interviewed 400 British electors to test the proposition that political preferences have an effect on how people attribute the determinants of wealth. As predicted, Ss preferred environmental explanations to the causes provided relating to personal qualities. Preferences for environmental interpretations were less pronounced among Conservative party supporters. Findings have implications both for attribution theory and in an improved understanding of the nature of political attitudes. (7 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved).
