As a measure of impending conflict was used the level of emotional perception r local and Central political orders. It was normalized from -1 (negative order) to +1 (acceptance of order). The basis of measurements on the method of semantic differential Charles Osgood. Using the theory of ideal points Coombs, levels of perception calculated in the linear approximation and on the previously developed model in the framework of catastrophe theory. Shows the distribution of respondents by levels of emotional perception, calculated by the multi-agent modeling program Any Logic. Obtained that on average the studied audience perceives the local government is neutral (r=0,04). However, 39% of respondents perceive the local order is negative, 53% were positive. To the Central government, on average, the ratio is slightly positive (r=0,13). Negative emotional perception is characterized by 23%, positive – 60%.
