PAIVA, Denise and TAROUCO, Gabriela da Silva. Voto e identificação partidária: os partidos brasileiros e a preferência dos eleitores. Opin. Publica [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.2, pp.426-451. ISSN 0104-6276. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-62762011000200006.
This article aims to contribute to the debate on the role of parties on the electoral choice in Brazil and intends to verify how party preference - which is measured through a scale of levels of preference -relates to socio-economic variables and with the decision of vote. The results indicate that the income does not explain the preferences of voters regarding parties, which in turn, also does not explain the vote for federal deputy. This seems to suggest that the literature regarding the decline of partisan identification and the weakness of the social links among parties and voters is correct.
