In addition to shared views and media effects, you should consider elite cueing: mass opinions are affected by the views of national (party) elites. There is quite some academic (also empirical) literature about it, e.g. here https://rubenson.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/merkley-stecula.pdf (US) or here https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/...
