Cet article cherche a savoir si les votants de l'Ontario modelent leurs attitudes selon des ensembles identifiables et si ces ensembles ont influence la votation ontarienne au moment de l'election federate de 1968. Quatre champs d'attitudes sont apparus comme etant suffisamment structures pour faire l'objet d'indices. Ce sont les attitudes vis-a-vis l'Etat providence, l'intervention etatique, les canadiens-francais (le bilinguisme et le biculturalisme), et les catholiques. Si on controle l'origine ethnique et raffiliation religieuse, on retrouve une association significative entre les Preferences electorales des votants ontariens et les attitudes anti-frangaises et anti-catholiques. Cette meme association significative existe entre les Preferences electorales et les attitudes vis-a-vis l'Etat providence lors-qu'on controle l'appartenance de classe quoiqu'elle n'existe pas par rapport a rintervention etatique.

This paper reports research on the extent to which Ontario voters organize their attitudes into recognizable sets, and the effect of such organized attitude sets on voting in the 1968 Canadian federal election. Four areas were found to be sufficiently organized for index construction - attitudes on the welfare state, on government intervention, to French-Canadians (on bilingualism and bicultur-alism) and to Catholics. Significant associations with voting Preferences for the 1968 election were found for anti-French and anti-Catholic attitudes, controlling for ethnicity and religion respectively. Significant associations were also found for the welfare state index, controlling for social class, but not for government intervention.
