In 1986, J. Glass argued that a parent’s political orientation is the strongest determining factor in predicting a child’s future political preferences (i.e., most (or many) Republicans grew up in Republican-leaning households and most (or many) Democrats grew up in Democrat-leaning households). See Attitude similarity in three-generational families: Socialization, status inheritance, or reciprocal influence? American Sociological Review, Vol 51, 685-698 (1986).
