Since interest groups differ from otherpublic communicators, we propose a theory of interest group persuasion. Interestgroups typically have a low public profile, and so most people are unlikely to havestrong attitudes regarding them. Source-related predispositions, such as credibilityassessments, are therefore less relevant in moderating effects of persuasive appeals byinterest groups than those of high-profile communicators. We test this argument inmultiple large-scale studies. A parallel survey and field experiment (N¼4,659) estab-lishes the persuasive potential of low-profile interest groups in both controlled and re-alistic settings. An observational study (N¼700) shows that substantial portions ofthe public are unable to assess interest group credibility. A survey experiment(N¼8,245) demonstrates that credibility assessments moderate the impact of partybut not interest group communication.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-06-18T09:25:35Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Schoen, Harald</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dc:contributor>Schoen, Harald</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2021-04-25</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Mader, Matthias</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>A Source Like Any Other? : Field and Survey Experiment Evidence on How Interest Groups Shape Public Opinion</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
