    Targeted Political Advertisement Online ‐ Challenges to the perception of a fair electoral processes

    PhD Candidate Stefan Meissner, Department of Economics:

    The framework of rules for elections is an important factor in their outcomes. The emergence of targeted political advertisement online has sparked a public debate on how the government should set rules for them. In this paper, we investigate if strategic considerations drive peoples' demand for regulation of targeted political advertisement online. For that purpose, we conduct a large online survey-experiment with 1600 Americans. We show that supporters of both parties believe that opposing partisans are more influenced by targeted political advertisement than supporters of their own party and that this belief is linked to support for stricter government regulation. We provide a randomly selected subset of participants with information that targeted political advertisement was beneficial to Republicans in 2016. Republicans who received that information are less supportive of government regulation. That suggests that participants are willing use government rules for elections as strategic tool to benefit their own party.
