Implications For a Spatial Model of Voting
- The number of dimensions of the Basic Space -- X -- will be small
(probably two or one).
- Issue Dimensions -- Y -- are generated through simple linear maps -- W --
from the basic space; that is: XW = Y.
- The politician's ideal points in the basic space will be stable.
- The further a legislator is from the center of the basic space the more
intense the belief and the greater the stability.
