Public Opinion and Voting Behavior

Moral Stances and the Preservation of Political Trust during the Pandemic



This study is built upon an analysis of web survey data collected from 2021 to 2022 when the pandemic crisis escalated in Taiwan. This study utilizes multiple correspondence analysis to explore the latent associations between pairs of variables, particularly social media use, opinions about vaccine policies, moral stances, and political trust. The results are expected to show the patterns that meet democratization scholars’ expectations and those that go beyond existing theoretical reasoning.
