Using 1960-1988 cumulative survey data from the National Election Study, this study identifies four basic dimensions of political alienation; uses regression and algebraic decomposition methods to examine the increases in alienation and decline in voter turnout; probes the relationship between the two; examines the sources for the decline in turnout.
