Brexit and conspiracy thinking

New article in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology.

What does Brexit have to do with conspiracy beliefs? Results of a study conducted in the context of the Brexit referendum show that belief in conspiracy theories was a significant predictor of the will to vote Leave as well as a subsequent actual Leave vote. Research was carried out in cooperation with the Conspiracy Psychology Lab Group and the Political Psychology Lab at Kent.
