To advance understanding of the present-day Russian regime, three political scientists set out a model of political authority in democratic and undemocratic regimes. New Russia Barometer surveys, especially a post-presidential election survey in March 2004, are used to document the amount of resigned acceptance of the Putin regime. The article reviews alternative hypotheses about why people may differ in their view of authority and tests the hypotheses statistically. The authors then consider circumstances, both economic and political, that might upset this equilibrium.
