Abstract [en]

This essay examines the attitudes towards Russians and Americans in the Swedish population. By using statistical methods, it aims to explain to what degree ideology affects attitudes and prejudice towards different nationalities. By using theories of group identities combined with psychological research of how people make decisions this essay intend to determine the affect ideology has on our attitudes towards other people. By using the two nationalities that have been symbols and for two different ideologies it enables this paper to highlight how people process information about other nationalities and to what degree we are affected by our political standpoint. In contrary to the common idea that general trust decide whether you like someone or not this essay concludes that attitudes also are anchored in left-right ideology to a high degree.
