The domain of politics is generally considered to belong to the world of public affairs. The links entertained by individuals with politics are reflected in the voting choices they make and in their political involvement, both of which are usually considered to be of interest only for their effects at a collective level. Commentators and observers focus on the opinions of citizens as members of a collective society rather than as private individuals, looking at their behavior and way of expressing themselves during elections, as activists, members of a political party, union members, demonstrators, strikers, members of a television audience, newspaper leaders, or participants in opinion polls which are examined, abundantly commented on, and dissected.
