dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the relationship between black racialization of public opinion and support for government financed health care. Four hypotheses are tested. Previous research has provided evidence of the impact of elite cuing as a mechanism to racialize public opinion. This issue is examined using the 2012 American National Election Survey Time Study (ANES) and ordinary least squares regression. Elite cuing is a contributing factor to the racialization of public opinion. The trend toward conservative ideology is often exacerbated black racialization. Results of this thesis support the hypotheses and are consistent with previous reports that public opinion is affected by use of racial cuing. Implications of the findings are discussed.en_US
