The Presidential Expectations Gap: Public Attitudes Concerning the PresidencyRichard Waterman, Carol L. Silva, and Hank Jenkins-Smith 2014
Using data from five original surveys, the authors confirm that the expectations gap is manifest in public opinion. It leads to lower approval ratings, lowers the chance that a president will be reelected, and even contributes to the success of the political party that does not hold the White House in congressional midterm elections. This study provides important insights not only on the American presidency and public opinion, but also on citizens' trust in government.
