In this paper we use a two-layer model in which we are able to empirically measure direct and indirect effects of satisfaction with public policies based on purely subjective preferences of citizens. We are also able to distinguish which individuals are dissatisfied the most. The estimation results suggest that the specified public policies are all significant except the respondent's attitude with respect to policies regarding social security, the amount of social benefits and immigration policy. Within the political context of 2001 left wing voters are less satisfied with policies aiming to realize a 24 hours economy than right-wing voters. Right wing voters are dissatisfied with immigration policies.
