What is the relationship between political distrust and support for Radical Right Parties? This thesis is an analysis of the supporters of the Radical Right Parties of Austria, Norway, Denmark, and Sweden. Empirical evidence suggests that these four countries are suitable and comparable objects for statistical analysis of the research question at hand. The author argues that political distrust should be measured at two different levels: it is either directed at the political elite or at the political system. Radical Right Party supporters distrust the political elite, not the system, and they share those attitudes with all other voters who support parties in opposition; i.e. parties not taking part in government formations. Based on his findings, the author finds reasons to revise some established normative views of political distrust and democratic citizenship.
