The present study seeks to discover the relationships that exist among three open, operationalizations of political alienation, social location (demographic) characteristics of the individual, and dissatisfaction with government policy. After a theoretical discussion of anomie and alienation and their extensions to political alienation, measures of political cynicism, internal political inefficacy, and external political inefficacy are examined with various measures of ascribed and achieved individual attributes and with the perception of policy differences with the Republican and Democratic Parties. Multivariate models are then used to examine the relative impact of these two set of variables on the measures of political alienation.
