Subject. The article focuses on socio-economic processes in the Krasnodar Krai within 2016 through 2018 and their impact on political predilections of people living there. Objectives. The study evaluates to what extent the socio-economic situation influences political predilections of people in various municipalities of the Krasnodar Krai. Methods. The study is based on methods of data alignment, comparative method, statistical data analysis. Results. I evaluate to what extent the socio-economic situation influences political predilections of people living in various municipalities of the Krasnodar Krai. Having analyzed metrics of the region's socio-economic situation, I found advanced and underdeveloped municipalities of the Krasnodar Krai. The article also refers to the outcome of municipal votes in economically leading and lagging districts of the Krasnodar Krai, thus revealing the extent to which the socio-economic situation influences political predilections of the region's population. Conclusions and Relevance. The socio-economic situation has a meager effect on political predilections of people living in the Krasnodar Krai within 2016 through 2018. Notwithstanding the socio-economic position, in various districts, people demonstrate the identical support to political movements seen during elections. There is the dormant potential for the political opposition, which has not yet been activated by political rivals. What mainly causes the low support to opposition parties is that their respective candidates have insufficient representation at municipal elections across multi-mandate electoral districts.
