Abstract
This paper will contribute to the question if the traditional partisan advocates of those parts of the electorates suffering most from rising inequality are still able to fullfill their represantive task in Western societies or if that link lies in ruins and other or new actors have to be found to close the gap in representation.
The paper will adress this following two main questions: 1) How have perceptions of and attitudes towards inequality changed over the last two decades? 2) Have parties responded to changes in the voters positions?
