For example, in politics, a special interest group may want to support a politician who backs their cause. The group would look for a candidate who supports their views and support his election. Once in office, the politician would then conduct policy that supports the interest group.
Thus, the variable relationship formula would look like this:
Antecedent variable (interest in cause) -> Independent variable (interest group support) -> dependent variable (policy decisions)
