Notes

Abstract:
This dissertation examines political preferences and media habits of immigrants from ex-Soviet countries. It also looks at how ethnic and American identities, media, interpersonal communication, and American educational institutions influence immigrants' integration into the new political system. In line with the economic advancement hypothesis and previous research, this study found that immigrants with higher earnings were more likely to support the Republican Party, while those with lower incomes were more likely to support the Democratic Party. The findings also indicated a strong contribution of American media, social networks, and interpersonal communication to the process of immigrants' political socialization. Also, the following research indicates that immigrants certainly are able to maintain dual loyalties, which do not necessarily conflict with each other. ( en )
