The COVID-19 pandemic is an unparalleled global crisis. Yet, despite the grave adversity faced by citizens, incumbents around the world experienced a boost in popularity during the onset of the outbreak. In this study, we examine how the response to the COVID-19 outbreak in one country has affected incumbent support in other countries. Specifically, we leverage the fact that the first country-wide lockdown on European soil, in Italy on March 9, 2020, happened during the fieldwork of online surveys conducted in four other European countries, France, Germany, Poland and Spain. Join the UF Jean Monnet Chair and UF Center for European Studies for a talk with Catherine De Vries, Professor, Bocconi University, on the political affects of the Italian COVID-19 response on other EU member states.
