Dude, Where’s My Party?
Do our parties effectively represent the will of (most of) the people? Some researchers (Morris Fiorina) believe the parties have been pulled to the polls and the moderate views that most Americans hold are left behind. One of the ways that our parties might “die” is not by ceasing to exist, but by existing in such a way that there is considerable fluidity in voter loyalty and few distinguishable issues that are represented in alignment with the interest of most voters.
