About this Item
- Pillars of Democracy: The Political Parties
- Despite periodic efforts to create new parties, for well over a century nothing has broken the hold of the Democratic and Republican parties on governance and elections. But while a president or major legislative faction from outside the two-party system may be hard to imagine in the near future, primary elections, party discipline in voting, and the relationships between the parties have changed a great deal in recent decades. Public attitudes towards the parties have changed as well. Join the John W. Kluge Center, the Brookings Institution, and the American Enterprise Institute for a discussion of the party system, how it shapes our political futures, and how it might be improved.
