How Counter-Stereotypical Sources Attenuate Polarization Over Consumption-Related Policy Issues

In spite of the widespread gap in political and consumption preferences along ideological lines, we show that counter-stereotypical sources attenuate polarization over consumption-related policy issues (e.g., gun rights, marijuana legalization). These sources persuade more in-groups than dissuade out-groups, and may prove helpful to build consensus.
