PRIMARY: THE SOCIOLOGICAL MODELWHAT IS THE SOCIOLOGICAL MODEL?Basically, the sociological model of voting takes a look at how people vote based off of what is influencing themto vote. In order to see what is influencing someone you need to take a loot at social class, religious background,ethnicity, race, family loyalties, gender (gender affiliation) and on the job relationships. This is what makes up aperson’s political socialization.WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO DO WITH THE ELECTION?First of all the sociological model of voting really is taking place in every election, because most often people aregoing to vote based off of their political socialization and not just follow their respective party like sheep. In thiselection, many people are listening to the candidates and the questions they are asking are “How will this affectme?” and “What will each candidate to for me?” Because of this, I would certainly say the sociological model istaking the role as the primary model of voting in this election.
