Abstract [en]

Drawing on an original 2014 public opinion survey, this paper offers a brief overview of contemporary political orientations in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Looking specifically at performace-related system support and attitudes towards democracy, the paper demonstrates significantcross-national as well as ethnic attitudinal differences in the region. Support for democracy doesnot seem to be overly strong in the Baltic states, but the key finding is that public support for democracy is still comparatively stronger than support for authoritarian rule. This is tentatively goodnews: as long as support for non-democratic regime alternatives does not exceed support for ademocratic polity, democracy may be deemed to have sufficient legitimacy among citizens, andthe risk of a democratic breakdown in the Baltic states must be regarded as insignificant.
