Abstract: This paper explores the role of mass media in people's perceptions of charismatic leaders. Using survey data collected immediately after Koizumi's 2005 landslide electoral victory, we empirically assess the influence of television (TV) and newspapers on individuals’ support for Koizumi and for the most distinctive policy.
