In political psychology, the partisan effect is a cognitive bias in the way people view political decisions and judgments. That is, people's assessments of policies and their judgments about political issues are influenced by whether they are supported by their own political party or an opposing political party. They tend to support a policy if it is supported by their own political party, but are against it if it's supported by an opposing political party.
