Abstract [en]

This article uses a large-ndataset to investigate the effect of terroristattacks with American victims on the popularity of the U.S. president.The study uses two broad theoretical frameworks to analyze thiseffect, the score-keeping framework and the rally-effect framework.Thefindings of the study show that, when excluding the effect fromthe September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, actual terrorist attacks haveno generalizable short-term impact on the popularity of the U.S.president. This indicates that even though the topics of nationalsecurity, terrorism, and the president’s ability to handle these issuesare important in the political debate in the United States, actualterrorism has little or no short-term impact on presidential approvalratings.
