### Table 1: Parameter Estimates for the Coordinating and Non-Coordinating Models

"... In PAGE 28: ... For 1994 and 1998 there is a signi#0Ccant tendency for electors who have higher values of #12 i to be more likely to vote than electors who havelower values of #12 i : conservative electors were especially mobilized in those two elections. *** Table1 about here *** In every year, the coordinating model passes the parameter-based tests of the conditions neces- sary for it to describe coordinating behavior. Table 2 reports the LR test statistics for the constraint #0B = 1, imposed separately for eachyear.... In PAGE 29: ... The House position was expected to be closer to the Democratic position in 1978, 1982, 1986 and 1990, closer to the Republican position in 1994 and 1998. The MLEs for #0B in the coordinating model are less than :5inevery year except one #28see Table1 #29, suggesting that electors expected the Presidenttobeweaker than the House in determining post-midterm policy. *** Table 4 about here *** The distribution of the ordering of electors apos; ideal points with respect to the post-election policies electors expect according to the coordinating model shows that the moderating mechanism of the coordinating model is capable of generating a midterm cycle of the kind emphasized by Alesina and Rosenthal #281989; 1995#29, though it need not do so....

### Table 1. Maximum Likelihood Estimates

2000

"... In PAGE 4: ... The rationale of this method is that it is robust, consistent, and straightforward. For a given distribution, the Maximum Likelihood Estimate (MLE) for its parameter is the mini- mum value of: log N Y i=1 f(xi; ) ! (4) Table1 lists the MLE of the parameters of the three chosen distributions. Finally, the data to be fitted out of the behavioral mod- els has to be prepared.... ..."
