Request: Voting By Culture Lit?

Dear Readers!

Quick question – does anyone out there have a good handle on the political science literature on voting in the U.S.? Specifically, I am looking for anything about the cultural tastes of voters vs. non-voters. For example, are voters more likely to go to the opera and less likely to go to NASCAR events? Etc. Any recommendations? Looking for stuff that goes beyond the basic demographics of income, race, gender, etc.

Thanks!

  1. The Monkey Cage is a good place to start for questions. They do a lot of quick one-off analyses on the site, but usually cite other work that pertains to what they are discussing.

    Also, I think that some might be covered in Andrew Gelman, et al.’s Red State, Blue State. Although focusing on income, it might be a good place to cull citations.
