* Critically assess the recent trends in US election cycles.
Instructions:
Compose a 3-5 paragraph essay answering the prompt below. Intro and conclusion paragraphs are required, but do not count toward the 3-5 paragraph length requirement. Your essay’s first paragraph must contain a thesis statement. Remember that any run of at least three words in a row that are not your own must be placed in quotation marks and you must indicate the source from which it comes.
Think back on the past several weeks of this class. Max Weber argued that public trust in institutions is essential for a democracy to work. Robert Dahl argued that healthy democracies require “E.V.A.C.” and a political system that exhibits “polyarchy” (formulating preferences, signifying preferences, preferences are given equal weight by government, robust participation, and robust public contestation.)
Over the past two modules we have built on these concepts by examining the impact of political parties, partisanship, and the election process on the U.S. political system.
Prompt (Your essay should be an argument answering this prompt):
Based on Weber and/or Dahl’s ideas, identify 3 consequences of partisanship and/or the presidential election cycle that impact the health of US democracy. Explicitly connect your 3 choices to Weber and/or Dahl and explain your answer.
Some Possible Topics You could Cover in Your Essay:
* Gerrymandering & public contestation: This is related to Dahl & Polyarchy
* Gatekeeping, framing & the formulation of preferences: This is related to Dahl & Polyarchy
* Campaign fundraising, “private” fundraisers, public contestation & equal weighing of preferences: This is related to Dahl & Polyarchy
* The party primary schedule, the exaggerated influence of early primary states, participation, & equal weighing of preferences: This is related to Dahl & Polyarchy
* Caucuses vs. Primaries, participation: This is related to Dahl & Polyarchy
* Low information voters, their impact on the outcome of “Stage 4”, the formulation of preferences: This is related to Dahl & Polyarchy
* The Electoral College, swing states, & equal weighing of preferences: This is related to Dahl & Polyarchy
Features of the Election Cycle that might erode public trust in the institutions of government:
These are related to Weber’s “sources of authority” from Week 2, specifically what he called “rational-legal authority”:
* The need to raise enormous amounts of funding for campaigns
* The effectiveness of attacking an opponent for being “too extreme”
* The effectiveness of running for office by attacking “Washington”
Extra guidance:
* I am interested in your opinion, but that’s not really what I am asking for in this assignment. I’m much more interested in a conclusion you reach based on course material we have examined so far.
* While it is possible to compose a “wrong” answer, I find that these are very rarely submitted by students who reliably keep up with the class. Rather, keep in mind that there is no single correct answer to this prompt. Don’t worry so much about being “wrong”, focus more on constructing a compelling argument that shows what (relevant material) you have learned.
* Your essay should make an argument that aims to convince a reader that you have arrived at the best answer.
* Think of an adult you respect, but who hasn’t taken this class, as your intended “audience” for this essay.
* Your essay must use a few relevant parts of the Weber lecture material and/or the Dahl readings (quotes or paraphrase).
* When your essay uses a key concept from from class, you should describe it in 1-2 sentences. Don’t merely name concepts.
* For example: If you discuss “incumbent advantage,” describe what that term means in 1-2 sentences.

OBJECTIVE: This assignment is called the Political Parties Essay. The objectiv

OBJECTIVE: This assignment is called the Political Parties Essay. The objective of this assignment is for you to compare the platforms (issues and policies), messaging and behavior of third parties versus the two major parties (Democrats and Republicans).
INSTRUCTIONS: First, you will view two debate videos (“U.S. Third Party Presidential Debate” and the “Trump v. Biden Presidential Debate”) and assess their content according to the elements mentioned in the objective above.
Important: Set the Third Party Debate Video to the 1:08 (one hour and eight minute mark) and begin watching from there. You do not need to watch the preliminary panel discussion before the debate.
After viewing the videos, please respond with two lists (as requested in item #1 below) and in 2 or 3 paragraphs of content respond to the questions below (Items #2, #3, and #4). Put everything on the same document in a word or word compatible file.
1.) Make two lists, one for the major parties and the other for third parties and write down the most important issues brought up in each debate (at least 5 in each list).
2.) Compare and contrast the behavior of the candidates in each video and tell me why you think the dynamic was so different in the two debates.
3.) Who seemed more honest in their response to policy questions, the major parties or third parties? Defend the position you took. In defending your position think about which parties have the most incentives or disincentives to tell the truth. Also, distinguish between different issues that seemed honest and important versus issues that seemed phony and hollow.
4.) Would you consider voting for a third party or would you stick with the major parties? In your response, base your vote on policy comparisons rather than on how competitive the parties are.

*select a time period from these links where the President was of a different political party than the majority in Congress, and bring to discussion some of the problems of having a President elected by factions that are not the majority in Congress
Article I of the Constitution provides the requirements and power of the Legislative Branch. This link provides a history of numbers of Democrats and Republicans in Congress from 1855 (when the Republican Party was founded): http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0774721.html Notice that during the Civil War years of the early 1860s there were few Democrats because southern states pulled out of Congress to create their own government: The Confederate States of America. After the Civil War, loyalty oaths were required for them to once again have voting rights and participate in elections, becoming known as the “solid Democratic South”. Until the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, running for Congress in southern states meant running as a Democrat, and presidential candidates needed to find a way to gain southern votes. Article II of the Constitution provides the requirements of the Executive Branch of government. This link shows presidential election voting by political party for the same time period: http://2012election.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=004332
