Increased voting for candidates who compensate victims rather than punish offenders

Adams, G and Mullen, E (2013) Increased voting for candidates who compensate victims rather than punish offenders. Social Justice Research, 26 (2). pp. 168-192.

Abstract

Three studies demonstrate that people are more likely to vote for political candidates who respond to injustice in a compensatory rather than punitive manner. Participants were more likely to vote for candidates who responded to various transgressions (the Darfur crisis, campus bike theft, and domestic violence) by compensating victims (or simultaneously compensating victims and punishing perpetrators) rather than solely punishing the perpetrator or not responding. Furthermore, participants’ perceptions of candidates’ warmth (but not competence) mediated the relationship between punishing versus compensating and voting.
