This study using a literature review. The study of political science to see political attitudes and behavior uses surveys. After the Reformation, the study of voting behavior through surveys was very developed but over time in the era of industrial democracy there was a lot of criticism because political consultants did not apply a strict methodology and some survey results were adjusted by the customer. This is the criticism and actually there are other studies that can look at political attitudes and behavior, namely neuropolitics (looking at the structure and function of the brain) and genes (political orientation is inherited).
