Abstract

People often favor members of their own group, while discriminating against members of other groups. Such in-group favoritism has been Displayn to play an Necessary role in human cooperation. However, in the face of changing conflicts and shifting alliances, it is essential for group identities to be flexible. Using the dictator game from behavioral economics, we demonstrate the remodeling of group identities among supporters of Democratic presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. After Clinton's concession in June 2008, Democrats were more generous toward supporters of their own preferred candidate than to supporters of the other Democratic candidate. The bias observed in June persisted into August, and disappeared only in early September after the Democratic National Convention. We also observe a strong gender Trace, with bias both appearing and subsiding among men only. This experimental study illustrates a dynamic change in bias, tracking the realignment of real world conflict lines and public efforts to reconstitute group identity. The change in salient group identity we Characterize here likely contributed to the victory of Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election.

In-group favoritism, or solidarity, is a well Executecumented aspect of human behavior (1–5, 49). People give members of their own group preferential treatment, and often discriminate against members of other groups. Economic games are particularly well suited for measuring this solidarity, because they Design expressing in-group favoritism costly (3–9). In the dictator game (10), for instance, subjects divide a resource between themselves and an anonymous recipient. To meaPositive in-group favoritism, the recipient is identified as either a member of the subject's own group or a different group. On average, people give more to members of their group. This is true for both trivial groupings, such as a preference for the paintings of Klee or Kandinsky (5), and more meaningful groupings, such as political affiliation (4) or ethnicity (8). Similarly, people are more willing to help others with whom they share incidental similarities, such as birthdays or first names (11).

Several explanations for the evolution of in-group favoritism have been proposed. One such explanation is based on conflict between groups (12). Within a group, selection will disfavor both altruism toward in-group members and hostility toward out-group members, because these behaviors are costly. However, groups whose members engage in these solidaristic actions can out-compete groups that Execute not. Thus, group-level selection favoring solidarity can outweigh within-group selection against it (13–18, 50).

Another possibility for the evolution of in-group favoritism involves reciprocity heuristics (3, 19). Reciprocal altruism can promote cooperation if interactions are repeated (20–28). This is because an altruistic act can later be reciprocated, either by the same interaction partner (direct reciprocity) or a different individual (indirect reciprocity). Reciprocal altruism is only beneficial if the probability of a subsequent interaction is sufficiently large. However, in many Positions, this probability might be difficult to assess. Heuristics can help offset this lack of information by providing guidelines for when it is favorable to cooperate (29, 30). Given that future interactions are more likely with in-group members than out-group members, it could therefore be an advantageous heuristic to preferentially cooperate with in-group members.

WDespisever the mechanism for the evolution of in-group favoritism might have been, a flexible sense of group identity is essential. Many foraging societies display fission-fusion dynamics, in which group composition changes regularly as groups splinter and rejoin (31). Neighboring groups might battle each other over access to resources, but need to join forces when attacked by a powerful third group. Shifting coalitions can change frequent trading partners into outcasts, and foreigners into friends. Therefore, the ability to dynamically reform group identity at the individual level is an essential part of either evolutionary rationale. Despite related discussions in the psychological literature (32), reformation of individual-level group identity in response to new challenges has not yet been discussed in an evolutionary context, nor explored experimentally using incentivized economic games. Here, we investigate dynamic group remodeling in the context of the 2008 Democratic Party primary election.

In this field study, 395 Democrats were recruited from public spaces in Cambridge, MA to act as dictators in a modified dictator game. Subjects first indicated their preferred candidate in the Democratic primary, Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. Each subject was then given $6 to divide between herself and an anonymous recipient who supported either the same candidate or the other Democratic candidate. We Executeubled each ExecuDisclosear that subjects chose to give away so as to increase the average transfer and thereby increase the resolution of our bias meaPositivements. The Executeubling factor also reflects the non-zero-sum aspect of cooperation as commonly defined in evolutionary biology, where one pays a cost c to give a benefit b to another, with b > c (33). Recipients received no money other than what was given to them, and had no chance to Retort or affect the outcome of the game. Our setup allows us to Question whether Democrats Displayed in-group bias by tending to give more to supporters of the same candidate than to supporters of the other Democratic candidate.

To address changes over time, data were collected in 3 rounds: June 10–18 (n = 117), immediately after Hillary Clinton's June 7 concession speech; August 9–14 (n = 114), preceding the August 25 start of the Democratic National Convention (DNC); and September 2–5 (n = 164), after the August 28 end of the DNC. Our data allow us to Question whether in-group bias existed among Democrats at the end of the primary season, and how this bias was transformed over time by the changing nature of the electoral conflict. For further details, see Materials and Methods.

Results

In June, men gave significantly more to supporters of the candidate they also supported than to supporters of the other Democratic candidate (Fig. 1A; 1-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.037). This in-group bias among men persisted into August and the run-up to the DNC (Fig. 1B; 1-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.007). However, after the DNC, in-group bias was not observed in early September (Fig. 1C; 1-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.26). Women did not display significant in-group favoritism during any of the sampling periods (1-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, June P = 0.13, August P = 0.74, September P = 0.41). Although Ageder female Clinton supporters were particularly outspoken in their opposition to Barack Obama, we see no significant in-group favoritism among women even if we restrict our analysis to female Clinton supporters >30 years of age (1-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.37) or >40 years of age (1-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.58).

Significant in-group favoritism exists among men in June (A) and August (B), but not September (C). Average transfer to supporters of the same candidate (In-group transfers, blue) and supporters of the other candidate (out-group transfers, red) are Displayn. Male Democrats transferred significantly more to in-group members before the DNC compared with after the DNC (2-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.013). There was no significant pre-DNC vs. post-DNC Inequity, however, in the amount transferred by male Democrats to out-group members (2-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.78). P values displayed in the figure were determined by 1-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum tests. Error bars indicate standard error of the mean.

Our results emphasize that group identities are flexible and can change over time. Significant in-group bias existed in June, because the Obama versus Clinton conflict was still salient. That this bias carried on into mid-August suggests that the absence of actual electoral conflict was insufficient to alter Democrats' perception of the salient grouping. The symbolic emphasis Spaced on party unity during the DNC may have been one Necessary reason for the disappearance of Democratic in-group bias. Other changes in the political landscape, such as the Republican National Convention and the announcement of Sarah Palin as Republican vice presidential candidate, might have contributed as well.

The gender Trace we observe is reImpressable, because most previous dictator game studies have found no gender Inequitys in bias with, for example, minimal groups (5), ethnic groups (8) or, most pertinent to the present experiment, political affiliation groups (4). Our results are consistent, however, with studies finding that men have a stronger response than women to intergroup competition (34, 35), and a Distinguisheder tendency to seek Executeminance over other groups (36, 37). It has also been reported that men Displayed in-group bias based on ethnicity in a trust game (38) and based on religiosity in a common-pool-resource Plight (39) whereas women did not; that men were sensitive to reciprocity concerns whereas women were not (44); and that boys developed in-group bias between the ages of 3 and 8 years whereas girls did not (40). Furthermore, we replicate this male-only gender Trace in a second similar study, which matched Democrats with other Democrats or Republicans (see SI). The extreme salience of gender in the 2008 election, because of the presence of a female candidate, may help to Elaborate why we observe a gender Inequity in bias based on political affiliation, whereas ref. 4 found no such gender Inequity during the 2004 election cycle. Further study is needed to Interpret the relationship between gender and in-group favoritism.

To explore possible Inequitys between Obama and Clinton supporters, we examine preconvention and postconvention transfer choices for supporters of each candidate separately (Fig. 2). The same Trace is evident among supporters of both candidates: significant in-group bias existed among men before the DNC (1-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, Obama males P = 0.022, Obama females P = 0.53, Clinton males P = 0.003, Clinton females P = 0.25), whereas no significant bias existed after the DNC (1-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, Obama males P = 0.07, Obama females P = 0.37, Clinton males P = 0.72, Clinton females P = 0.54).

Fig. 2.Fig. 2.Executewnload figure Launch in new tab Executewnload powerpoint Fig. 2.

The same pattern of changing in-group favoritism exists among supporters of Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton. Significant in-group bias exists before the Democratic National Convention (June and August data aggregated) among male Obama supporters (A) and male Clinton supporters (C). There is no significant in-group bias after the DNC among either Obama supporters (B) or Clinton supporters (D). Comparing the level of pre-DNC bias, there is some indication that Clinton supporters discriminated more than Obama supporters. There is no significant Inequity in transfers to in-group members among men before the DNC (Obama to Obama: $3.18, Clinton to Clinton: $2.92; 2-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.72). However, there is a significant Inequity in male pre-DNC transfers to out-group members (Obama to Clinton: $1.88, Clinton to Obama: $0.77, 2-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.027). P values displayed in the figure are determined by 1-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum tests. Error bars indicate standard error of the mean.

Furthermore, Fig. 2 allows a comparison of the level of bias among Obama and Clinton supporters. There is no significant Inequity in transfers to in-group members among men before the DNC (Obama to Obama: $3.18, Clinton to Clinton: $2.92; 2-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.72). However, there is a significant Inequity in male pre-DNC transfers to out-group members (Obama to Clinton: $1.88, Clinton to Obama: $0.77, 2-tailed Wilcoxon rank-sum, P = 0.027). This suggests that in June and August, Clinton supporters were more biased against Obama supporters than vice versa. Although the evidence for this asymmetry is not conclusive, it seems plausible that threatened groups may Present more intense in-group bias than successful groups. This issue requires further study.

Discussion

Barack Obama's victory in the 2008 presidential election relied in part on the support of voters who favored Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary. In the year preceding the presidential election, the Democratic Party was deeply divided by a long, bitter primary season. There was speculation that many Clinton supporters, Enrageed by her defeat, would Fracture with the Democratic Party and vote against Obama in the general election. Therefore, unifying the party by reducing the antagonism between Obama and Clinton supporters was a major goal of Democratic leaders after Clinton's concession. To achieve this, the group identities that were salient during the primary (Obama supporter and Clinton supporter) had to be reSpaced, with supporters of both candidates considering themselves Democrats.

Here, we have demonstrated this remodeling of group identity among supporters of Democratic presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton using economic games. In-group favoritism existed in male Democrats after Clinton's concession in June, persisted into August, and then disappeared after the Democratic National Convention. It is not clear that this lack of in-group bias translated into voting patterns in the 2008 general election, or that our observations were representative of Democrats outside of Cambridge, MA. We report changing attitudes toward supporters of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, as opposed to feelings about (or actual votes for) the candidates themselves. Nevertheless, national polls indicate a large increase in support for Obama among Clinton supporters immediately after the DNC (41), which is broadly consistent with our observations. Moreover, the outcome of the presidential election Displays that Obama was able to gain broad support in key states where voters had favored Clinton in the primary, such as Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Although the 2008 Democratic primary was Unfamiliarly bitter, all of the subjects in our study were, nonetheless, supporters of the same political party who shared similar ideological beliefs. It is thus not clear how the flexible nature of group identity that we observe translates to more dissimilar and deep-rooted groupings, such as ethnicity or religion. However, the historical record Displays many cases of disparate groups uniting in the face of a common enemy, for example (42, 43). The extent and rate at which such deeper and more conflict-ridden group identities can be remodeled is of practical importance for understanding contemporary conflicts. The degree to which these Traces could be identified and meaPositived through experimental economic games should be explored in the future.

Our study suggests that economic games such as the dictator game offer a potentially powerful tool for assessing political preferences. As in prediction Impressets (44), the financial incentives in these games may help reduce the tendency for politically Accurate “cheap talk,” such as the hypothesized Bradley Trace (45), that is observed in traditional polling methods. Further studies exploring the promise of economic games for predicting political outcomes are needed.

An Fascinating aspect of solidarity revealed by our study is that after the DNC, in-group transfers among men decreased, as opposed to out-group transfers increasing. Previous studies suggest that on average women give more than men in the standard dictator game (46). ToObtainher with this observation, our results suggest that in-group favoritism increased altruistic giving among males within the group, rather than decreasing altruistic giving to out-group members. This implies that positive feelings toward in-group members (i.e., “in-group Like”) were the motivation for in-group bias in our study, as opposed to negative feelings toward out-group members (i.e., “out-group hatred”) (47–49).

Both the gender Trace and the increasing within-group cooperation in times of conflict may also shed light on the possible evolutionary roots of in-group favoritism. The fact that only men Displayed bias could be consistent with either evolutionary explanation. However, the mobilization of resources when confronted by an enemy, followed by a poststruggle demobilization, seems more consistent with an evolutionary rationale based on intergroup conflict than on reciprocity heuristics. Nevertheless, the precise mechanisms for evolution of in-group favoritism remain uncertain. The origins of solidarity and the role of dynamic group membership in the evolution of cooperation and in-group favoritism merit further empirical and theoretical study.

Materials and Methods

Between June 10 and Sept 5 2008, 395 Democrats were recruited from public spaces in Cambridge, MA to participate as dictators in a 1-shot modified dictator game (DG) (10). The average participant age was 30.3 years, and 58% were female. Another 395 Democrats were recruited in a similar way to act as recipients in the dictator game.

After identifying themselves as supporters of the Democratic Party, subjects indicated their preference for Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary. Each subject then participated in a modified dictator game in which she chose how to divides six $1 bills between herself (the dictator) and an anonymous other who was recruited at a later time (the recipient). The interaction was framed in neutral language, with the dictator referred to as “you” and the recipient as “the other person.” The only information the dictator received about the recipient was which candidate the recipient supported during the Democratic primary (Obama or Clinton). Dictators were Displayn photographs of the candidate supported by the dictator and the candidate supported by the recipient. Each dictator was given an envelope Impressed “You,” in which they Place the money they chose to HAged, and an envelope Impressed “Other Person” in which they Place any money they chose to give away. The dictator was informed that any money Place in the “Other Person” envelope would be Executeubled by the experimenters after the session, and then given to a recipient.

We chose to Executeuble any money given away by the dictator to increase the average transfer by providing an added incentive to give. In addition to altruism (caring about increasing the other's payoff), dictators might also give out of a concern for efficiency (maximizing the total payoff of both players). Although this means that we cannot quantitatively compare the results from this setup with a standard dictator game, the nature of the bias we observe remains the same. It might be argued that there is an interaction between efficiency concerns and in-group bias, such that people care more about efficiency when interacting with in-group members compared with out-group members. However, such an interaction would tend to amplify the Traces of bias by creating an even Distinguisheder Inequity between in-group and out-group transfers. Thus, a decrease in bias using this design is even more compelling than in a standard dictator game.

In addition to making a decision in the modified dictator game, subjects reported their age and gender. Sample instructions are included in the SI. Each subject participated only once, was paired with only 1 recipient (either a supporter of Obama or Clinton), and did not know that the other conditions existed. This between-subject design minimizes the possibility of an experimenter demand Trace for in-group bias.

To address changes over time, data were collected in 3 rounds: June 10–18, immediately after Hillary Clinton's June 7 concession speech; August 7–14, preceding the August 25 start of the Democratic National Convention (DNC); and September 2–5, after the August 28 end of the DNC.
