Does Partisan Segregation Activate Partisanship? Behavioral Consequences of Partisan Segregation

In my dissertation project, I develop data on the partisan residential exposure of every voter in the United States over the previous decade, leveraging precise information on each voters residential location, partisan affiliation, and political behavior. With these data, I present new evidence on the extent and causes of partisan sorting in the United States, and test a new theory of how where Democrats and Republicans live in relation to one another influences political behavior.
