With this dissertation I aim for a deeper understanding of the most prominent link in research on radical right-wing populist parties – this aim is threefold. At its heart is the relationship between perceived group threat and radical right-wing populist party preferences. First, I test the temporal order of perceived group threat and radical right-wing populist party prefer-ences. Second, I examine the ideological climate of group threat perception as a contextual antecedent of preferences for radical right-wing populist parties. Third, I analyze if media attention to radical right-wing populist parties affects radical right-wing populist party prefer-ences and, if so, to what extent media attention operates as a factor further illuminating the link between perceived group threat and radical right-wing populist preferences.
