Abstract

Morally convicted political attitudes, operationalized as a measure of egalitarianism and moral traditionalism, affect how important people consider democratic norms to be in maintaining a strong democracy in the United States. Stronger agreement with egalitarianism and more disagreement with moral traditionalism are both associated with an increase in placing more importance on democratic norms.
