Two Party System:
In decline or resurgence

The Party's Over!
Primary Elections:
an election in which voters choose the party's candidates who will run in the later general election.

Candidate-Centered Campaign
: a campaign in which an individual seeking election, rather than an entire party slate, is the focus.
The Party's Just Begun!
Survival of the fittest
Third Parties in the US
Types of Third Parties
Issue Advocacy Parties
Formed to promote a stance on a particular issue. Many issue advocacy parties are short lived.
Ideologically Oriented Parties
Agenda is typically broader than that of an issue oriented party.

Structured around an ideology.

Broad views about many different aspects of government.
Splinter Parties
A party that breaks off from one of the two dominant parties.

Often splinters because of intraparty disagreement on a particular issue.
The Impact of Third Parties
1. Can influence electoral outcomes.

2. Provide a release valve for
dissatisfied voters.

3. Put a wide variety of issues on the
national political agenda
Republicans
(Party of Lincoln) have endured assassinations of party leaders, the Great Depression, the 4 term presidency of FDR and Watergate.
Democrats
opposed suffrage for African Americans, internal divisions over civil rights, assassinations and scandals.
Distinct lack of viable alternatives with a cohesive ideology that attracted a significant portion of the vote in more than one election.
