However, adopting a CCT with more elaborate rules and more robust operations (a “neutral” CCT), which is more effective in fighting poverty and is more insulated from politics, erodes patron-client relations. The vote of a wealthier CCT recipient is more expensive for political party brokers. Moreover, the implementation of a CCT with strict operational rules demonstrates to recipients that party brokers have less discretion to administer program resources. This informative effect also makes votebuying more difficult.

Conditional cash transfer programs are not salient only for recipients, they are often, if not always, the flagship programs of governments, as well. Administrations implementing cash transfers are unapologetic about reaching out to welfare state outsiders. ” As a consequence, in many countries in Latin America CCTs have garnered broad support.

Some argue that CCTs persuade recipients to change their vote choice for programmatic reasons, such as retrospective voting (D´ıaz-Cayeros and Magaloni 2009).

This book shows that when a CCT has operational guidelines that limit discretion, program benefits foster proincumbent support by mobilizing recipients, not by persuading them.
