Key Terms Reagan coalition Democratic coalition Retrospective voting McCarthyism A good democratic election? The 2008 campaign Did some satisfying percentage of the population participate? How high does the percentage need to be? Did the candidates debate the issues? Sometimes they just yell insults at each other If the politicians debate issues, did the media report the debate fairly and accurately? Did the people listen to the debate? Demagoguery is deflecting discussion You want basic stability in the debate If I’m the candidate that says I want to lower taxes and then gets into office and raises taxes, then there is something wrong with democracy Johnson ran as the “peace candidate” He said, “I’m not going to send your sons to Vietnam” A year and a half later, he sent 500,000 troops to Vietnam Parties among other things consist of coalitions… people who are typically republican or typically democratic

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
