Party Platforms and Winning Elections

Identify one issue area that you want investigate. Use the assigned resources required for this discussion to gather information about the goals and proposals, in that issue area, of three political parties – the Democratic and Republican parties and a third party.

At least 200-250 words, summarize each of the three parties’ policy goals in your issue area. Compare and contrast the parties’ goals in that area. Evaluate each party’s goals from two perspectives:

  • Your own political philosophy, values or ideology.
  • How effective each party’s goals are likely to be in mobilizing voters to support the party’s candidates on the national level. In making your assessment from this perspective, consider what influence the factors which underlie the two-party system have on each party’s ability to use its policy proposals to generate voter support.
